TCW poll: How Churchill could rise above the mob


THE iconoclastic fury has not abated and perhaps waits for this weekend when the various extremists will be away from what passes for paid employment for them in the kind of liberal parasitic organisations where they profitably fester.

There is a strong risk of a battle at the base of Churchill’s statue in Parliament Square as counter-demonstrators are mobilised to protect the monument from vandalism.

Churchill’s statue is being attacked only because it is accessible. It would, however, be a travesty if the authorities were permanently to cage protectively our greatest-ever Prime Minister, whose determination mobilised an entire country to save humanity from industrialised barbarism.  It is bad enough that the statue has been surrounded by scaffolding and hardboard in anticipation of disturbances. This is a tacit admission that the left-wing extremist mob can choose to rule the streets in the heart of our capital when sufficiently motivated and cause destruction at will, all under the cover of the useful idiots of a civil rights movement objecting to police brutality in the USA

There is, however an even better alternative.  It is to elevate Churchill.

Churchill eschewed honours bestowed by royalty other than induction into the Order of Merit in 1946 and becoming a Knight of the Garter in 1953. He had been offered a dukedom.

I do not propose a posthumous honour. But perhaps it is time for Churchill literally to rise above all the discontent.

While Parliament Square is festooned with monuments, they are all more or less at the same level.

The time has come for the former First Lord of the Admiralty to follow in the path of one of the Admiralty’s greatest warriors situated at the other end of Whitehall who made all the world’s oceans a British sea.

It is time for Churchill’s Column.
