As reported previously in the Jupiter, experts have determined the greatest speeches made in the Houses of Parliament and we were struck by the omission of Churchill from the list.
I am reasonably confident that the average person if asked to quote a famous speech made in Parliament would come up with either:
“We will fight them on the beaches…” or
“Never in the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few…”
Even allowing for the fact that the first of these is actually a misquote – the “them” is erroneously inserted, I can’t help but think that on this 50th anniversary of Churchill’s death it should be said that the experts got it wrong…again…
