Never In The Field Of Human Conflict

The imposing statue of Winston Churchill in Parliament Square and overlooking the UK's seat of power. Made from bronze by Ivor Roberts-Jones in 1973.

I wonder what he would think of the politicians that work there now, as they have now earned a reputation for being greedy, corrupt and generally dishonest individuals. Not that I am saying that the politicians of the 1940s & 50s were completely innocent of any wrong doing. Maybe they were just a bit more discreet, a little less greedy or the newspapers towed the line more and din't report any of their misdemeanours.

I wonder if old Winston ever fiddled his expenses?
