"When does the family start?"...

...Winston Churchill pondered in a speech: "Where does family life start?" and answered his own question  "It starts with a young man falling in love with a girl - no superior alternative has yet been found."

If he said that today, as Prime Minister and a Member of the House of Commons, he would be denounced and possibly threatened. There would be calls from his dismissal and he would be told he must make an instant and grovelling apology.

His statue still stands in Parliament Square, greatcoat on against the chill, strong defiant expression as he leads the nation in its finest hour.  For how much longer, I wonder? Probably at some stage there will be calls to take it down because of his unacceptable views .

I thought the far lefties over there in England all hated Winston Churchill. The ones I've come across on the internet have all expressed so. You just gave them another reason. It did not surprise me in the least that Obama returned his bust. I for one am a huge admirer of Churchill.
