Did anyone else notice the German Ambassador doing the Nazi salute at the opening ceremony?

    i'm not sure it was a a straight arm out hands flat all nazi. He was definitely waving at some points and think an opportune snap when he was momentarily stationary.

    Because it's 70 years ago and it was obvious he was just waving.

    My wife noticed this, but I did not - TBH, I don't think anyone would be stoopid enough to do that particularly a German Ambassador. More than likely he has a bizarre way of waving....

    I saw it and thought I'd seen it wrong. I think it is just a really unfortunate exaggerated wave.

    It's him waving it back and forth, never still salute style as to how the papers would like you to believe. WHy they've blocked it i have no idea - it shows it for what it was not what it wasn't.. Fecking PC police being arseholes again.

    I saw it earlier and it certainly looked like a Nazi salute! But was you say, I should think it was just an exagerrated wave...
