Winston Churchill

The Winston Churchill Rant

"I am strongly in favour of using poisonous gas against uncivilised tribes ... to spread a lively terror"

      - Winston Churchill (May 1919)

 

Recently the BBC aired something they called "Great Britons", a series of shows featuring a contest in which viewers could vote for their own "Greatest Briton of All Time". The winner, as you might have guessed: Winston Churchill. I suppose it all comes down to how you define "great", because he certainly could be called a great big this and that, but the BBC couldn't really come right out and use language like that, now could they? Personally, I just want to know for which reasons exactly he was chosen.
