Churchill – Surrexit a mortuis

Winston ChurchillMr. Churchill seems to be in the news again – the Twitter news that is – and is being variously employed by both the protagonists of European Union and its antagonists.  My reading of his speech at Zurich in 1946 is that he envisaged a “United States of Europe”.  If by this he was imagining a European version of the other “United States” it would have been a much closer federation than we have at present, which might surprise people if only they knew . . .

Personally, I go along with the great man . . .
