Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Churchill has his band of merry adulators just as Maggie Thatcher or Ronni Raygun have.

'Mustard gas' Churchill, the most lionised man of the 20thC.

A sometimes very witty man, but certainly no sage to subscribe to.

His ability to give uplifting oratory at a terrible time gained him much love and respect, but his core values were pompous and predatory, Empah incarnate.

Your sig, Redstar is trolling and you know it, I commend the Germans here for ignoring your provocation and answering on the merit of your often interesting arguments.

It's also getting boring. How about varying it and using other Churchill quotes, Such as "I hate Indians. They are a beastly people with a beastly religion."

The only Churchill quote I like is: "We are all worms, but some of us are glow-worms." :)
