Korea, an old Conundrum, and Mr. Churchill’s Wisdom

Korea was a prob­lem in 1952—as it is today. “Is the Prime Min­is­ter aware of the deep con­cern felt by the peo­ple of this coun­try at the whole ques­tion of the Kore­an con­flict?” an oppo­si­tion Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment asked the-then Mr. Churchill.

“I am ful­ly aware of the deep con­cern felt by the hon­or­able mem­ber in many mat­ters above his com­pre­hen­sion,” Churchill quipped. Which avoid­ed respond­ing to an unan­swer­able question.

Nation­al Day of Cel­e­bra­tion: April 9th?

Pub­lished 9 April 2016 by the Hills­dale Col­lege Churchill Project

Why does the Unit­ed States des­ig­nate April 9th as Nation­al Churchill Day? Why not, for exam­ple, May 10th? That was the day in 1940 when, with lib­er­ty in retreat, he became Britain’s prime min­is­ter, sure that he knew a good deal about it all, cer­tain he would not fail, impa­tient for the morning….
