Interesting piece but a small correction. Churchill was elected as MP for Manchester North West in 1906 not 1904 as he was then MP for Oldham until he was deselected by his constituency party. He was certainly far from evil as one of your talkbackers avers but did make some controversial decisions, an inevitable consequence of any power-wielding. His greatest trait, which eclipses all others, was his hatred of Nazism declaring it a bigger evil than Communism and coming from his class that was astounding. He quite literally saved Western civilization.
