In response to Laura Perrins: Churchill’s lessons for us all – including Leftie pipsqueaks, paul parmenter wrote:
Trying to make a name for yourself by trashing the reputations of the long since dead is nothing new. Neither is applying the mores and prejudices of the current day to past ages where they played no part, and concluding that you are morally superior.
I prefer the judgement of my parents, who actually lived through the war years and listened to Churchill’s inspirational words as they were spoken; when the war looked like being lost, when nobody knew if they were going to wake up the next morning or be bombed in their beds, and when nobody had the luxury of hindsight in a peaceful, safe and comfortable world. To them, Churchill was a hero without peer.
