Wise words from Sir Winston

In Uncategorized on September 29, 2007 at 4:02 pm

‘But we must never cease to proclaim in fearless tones the great principles of freedom and the rights of man which are the joint inheritance of the English-speaking world and which through Magna Carta, the Bill of Rights, the Habeas Corpus, trial by jury, and the English common law find their I most famous expression in the American Declaration of Independence.’

The above is an extract from a speech given by Churchill in Fulton, Missouri, in 1946. It is when he refers to the Iron Curtain that is descending on Europe. Mr Brown take note.
