Thanks Jameela! As a Churchill Fellow (and Secretary of the Churchill
Fellows Association NSW) this is a very useful link indeed! We often use
quotes attributed to WC on materials, and I often wonder how
accurate/attributable they are! (Is attributable a word? I'm not getting the
squiggly red line...)
