One of my all time heroes. And normally I don’t even like politicians particularly much! With very few exceptions. And he was one of these exceptions. His definition of socialism is one of the best I have ever heard!

A brilliant man a great statesman with backbone. We could do with someone like him now to stand up for all things Great Britain.

A very wise man was PM Churchill! Too bad we lack them today, especially in the House of Representatives here in the USA.

Chriss I like that one it means he had a sense of humour without which you might as well be dead Thank goodness for our comedians there is nothing that can be on par with a smile and laughter

An extra quote to add which I feel is important “it is not what you know that matters but what you don’t know” That is how you like a chameleon changes his form but how human species learn from every experience and why every individual contributes in some way to make life worthwhile

An incredible man - the likes of which we won't see again. I was surprised to learn his last quote/words were : " I'm bored with it all". What a shame.

As an English Expat I adore the man. My mum and dad told me of his greatness along with the King and Queen during World War 2. I love that he has been called "THE LAST LION" and "GOD'S GREAT ENGLISHMAN"
