    First of all, you shouldn't be proud to be a Briton… and secondly this guy was a dumb-ass so many Indian and Australian soldiers died needlessly because of his decisions. He might have been a great writer and speech maker but as Alan Brooke said ‘Winston had 10 ideas every day, only one of which was good’.

    Chive you need to come out with a Winston "F*cking Churchill" shirt in honor of this wise leader! #churchillFTW


    Didn't he say "Keep Calm and Carry On"?

    • ghostofmlg

      That saying actually originates from a series of posters created by the War Department in the event of a German invasion of England.

    Loved the blog I am a huge admirer of Churchill I even wrote a book about him called What Churchill Would Do, its on Kindle.
    Plug aside if you havent read Churchills six Volumes of WW2 memoirs I would heartily reccomend it. I have read countless books by Churchill and written about Churchill. I have posted loads of quotes on my twitter account and have been posting a few on Google+
    I have posted a poem for Churchill’s 80th birthday by Viscount Norwich
    When others fingered on the flute, You thundered on the drum. When armies marched and Cities burned And all you said came true, Those who had mocked your warnings turned Almost too late to you. Then doubt gave way to firm belief, And through five cruel years You gave us glory in our grief, And laughter through our tears. When final honors are bestowed And last accounts are done, Then shall we know how much was owed By all the world to one.

    In the 1950s Churchill was awoken by his aide in the middle of the night and told about the scandal of a backbench MP who was caught in St. James's Park having sex with a Guardsman by the police.

    Churchill: Last night?
    Aide: Yes.
    Churchill: It was very cold last night wasn't it?
    Aide: Yes Prime Minister I believe it was one of the coldest February nights in 30 years.
    Churchill: Makes you proud to be British!

      I liked that story I cant remember which book I read it in. Very typical Churchill.

    And let me guess Mike Hunt, you pussy. You’re the kind of asshole that trolls the comments waiting to blow everything out of proportion. #2 should read ” you have enemies? Good, I thought I was the only one that wanted to kick you in the dick!”

  • @StueyDay

    I still can't believe the guy earlier who thought Churchill was an actor and all his quotes were written by scrpitwriters. *shakes head*

  • Stuart Finlay

    Steverino download the first couple of chapters of my book What Churchill Would Do from Kindle its free? The first chapter has a great true story about how Churchill pissed of the Germans when they met with the Russians in 1940.
    The kindle app can be downloaded to PC.

    Some more beauties:

    "A fanatic is one who cannot change his mind and will not change the subject."

    "Some people's idea of free speech is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone disagrees it is an outrage."

    And my personal favorite:

    "Some regard private enterprise as a predatory tiger to be shot, others as a cow they can milk. Very few see it as a healthy horse pulling a sturdy wagon."

    "There is a forgotten, nay almost forbidden word, which means more to me than any other. That word is ENGLAND." Sir Winston Churchill
