          Pissed again, Winston? says:

          Winston may have achieved in death what he sought, or thought he might given he wrote his own view of History, and he ALWAYS won in that but he was a C*nt of the lowest water.
          He had no redeeming features.
          He was a gross “drunk” with an incredible consumption that continued throughout the War. The health effects were, heart attacks, stroke, depression, pneumonia attacks. Outrageous personal habits including exhibiting himself naked to inter alia Roosevelt, senior Forces Officers, his Secretariat.
          His so-called “military experience” was catastrophic. Ranging from the Norway Campaign, mining International Waters, Greece (stripping out the British Forces from Tobruk to re-in force the Greeks) losing Crete through appointing incompetent Commanding Officer (Freyburg). Micro-management of operational matters, such as the utter squandering of Fighter Squadrons over France leading to Dowdings threat to go public if he didn’t stop. In his War History, Churchill lied that it was he who refused the French demand for more Air Force support. In that matter, Churchill demonstrated his child-like ability to bear grudges when he sacked the victorious Dowdings and Park after the Battle of Britain.
          Churchill was so drunk, most of the time, he was unfit to broadcast on the Radio so most of his “famous” speeches were actually a contract BBC star, complete with Bass voice and speech defect (Churchill was a light Tenor). These are the ones that the Beeb are now selling as “his” recordings but they aren’t.
          He persistently showed no respect for his Generals, Auchinleck, Wavell, etc. he went behind everyone’s backs like Dowdings supporting Leigh-Mallory and Bader, his direct causation of the loss of Repulse and Prince of Wales, his appointment of Mountbatten and the debacle of Dieppe.
          In fact, it was a bloody miracle when SHAEF was formed and Churchill, Portal and his followers were marginalised by The Americans and Our man became Alan Brooke (with Eden and Macmillan in the background).
          It didn’t stop Churchill double-crossing Roosevelt in reaching secret agreements with Stalin behind Roosevelt and Harriman’s backs (his so-called ” naughty papers”).
          And Churchill’s final failures. No Campaign Medal for Bomber Command, he was too frightened that History would criticise him for area-bombing civilians, and omitting Polish Troops and Airmen from the Victory Parade in London. A man of Zero Honour!
          And no, Churchill didn’t win. We simply weren’t on the loser’s side. Britain lost everything but acquired a Civil Service Mandarinate that continues to function in exactly the same manner as it grew used to during the Totalitarian era of the War.

        I’m surprised turnover isn’t more like 20% per election. 20 oir 25 years selling your principles and soul for 60K a year would be more than enough for most people.

            Quite a sensible idea as the farmers probably create most of the potholes with their oversized farm machinery running on red diesel.

            It is past time that the restrictions on road use of farm machinery were enforced and tightened up. Some farmers are basically doing road haulage with none of the licences or vehicle testing they would need if they weren’t claiming to be “agricultural”.

      @EU Funded Pro EU Troll

      Specifically on Pan-Europa

      It was funded on the basis of four tenets, the first of which was Liberalism, a movement that started with the thinking of John Locke. Many good and worthy strands of thought but, to hark back to my Popper point, today’s Liberal Democrats are neither liberal nor democrat. We should not blame Locke for this. Nor John Stuart Mill who modernised the thinking. Neither Thomas Hill Green, the much loved tutor at Balliol and later Whyte’s Professor of Moral Philosophy, the founder of Oxford High School for Boys, in the days before school education became obligatory. So much good about Liberalism.

      Christianity is the second tenet, not exclusively as it admits to Judaism and Islam. We live in a changed world from von Coudenhove-Kalergi’s time but even if we are now mainly non-believers, it is difficult simply to ignore our heritage and certainly impossible to strip it out without committing the venal sins of the Bolsheviks of Lenin’s leadership. So the second tenet is not struck out either.

      The ethical theory of social responsibility, the third tenet, is something which most reasonable people would not object to. It’s problem is in its elasticity. There are a number of strands of ethical study, each of which take a different starting point as its measure and it is too complex to unpack here. Our modern worldview tends to think in terms of consequentialism but deontological (duty) and virtue ethics are still valued by many. So here we are already getting into difficulties and a wide scope of interpretation.

      The final tenet is Pro-Europeanism. Deep water lies here. Hardly any need to expand on this. Few are likely to come to these pages without a viewpoint. At every turn difficulties arise. The disasters that came about from both National Socialism and Communism should warn us about a top-down authoritarian system. Unfortunately, man seldom learns from experience. Santayana yet again.

      So where did all those communists disappear to in 89/90? Straight into the body politic.

      My point here is to avoid the criticism of the likes of von Coudenhove-Kalergi, struggling in the undissipated fog and smoke in the aftermath of war. Blame those who picked it up and ran with it, especially those who used it as a personal advancement ticket. Unfortunately, they seem to be in the majority. Moreover, they would not understand ethical study if you hit them over the head with it, carved in stone.
