He'd sort the way this country is heading for a start.

Time to bring in the army.

Yup, exactly what Winnie would do.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
And actually did.

Indeed.

Beat Hitler single handed though.

Those who think its funny probably shouldn't dial 999 in that case
Those who don't like whats happening wont be voting Labour or Democrat though, that's for sure,nailed on

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Why shouldn't they call the police?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Ghostbusters.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
They are tough people who will never need the police
If you abuse police officers ,then when you need them and you call 999
You are being a fekkin hypocrite,
Sorry I had to explain that for the hard of thinking

Even the likes of Priti Patel & Co wouldn't have a place in Churchill's Britain.

Historical context.


If Churchill was alive today, he might have changed his mind.

What do you think of Patel giving her experience if racism, only to be accused of gaslighting by Bame Labour mps?

Do some black lives not matter if they are conservative, for example?

No one counts she’s suffered some racial abuse in her life and I have every sympathy for her. But her words would mean more if she wasn’t working for a government who don’t really seem to give a crap about minorities. She’s even said her own immigration policy would have meant her own parents wouldn’t have been allowed into the country.

If you're calling him crime loving, when police funding and a whole load of contributing factors are controlled by the government then yeah it looks a bit suspect

Keep calm. Keep calm.

So a lot of people decide to demonstrate, as responsibly as they could in these Covid times, about a great injustice, both in America, and in a wider sense elsewhere, including here. And get a lot of support. That's good, although because of Covid I think they need to start thinking of drawing a line.

Then some extremists (on both sides) try to hijack the demonstrations. Predictable; it's what extremists try to do. The farce of drunken thugs turning up to "protect Churchill's statue" then assaulting the police shows how ridiculous they are.

Equally a farce is the "pull down statues" movement. Statues commemorate what somebody did, not what they were; few leaders are to be admired for what they were rather than what they did. Churchill saved the country from an evil totalitarian fate, worthy of commemoration. The 1945 General Election is a useful example. Churchill toured the country and was widely applauded. The same people then voted and Labour won by a landslide. They appreciated Churchill the wartime leader. They didn't want him as a peacetime prime minister. They knew the difference. Same applies today.

Don't get upset by the hooligans out for a bit of publicity. Just ignore them, and when necessary let the police deal with them.
