Obviously he was a heavy drinker, and he came from a different time, when perhaps the definition of an alcoholic might be different from our own one. Churchill had a whiskey with his breakfast and drank heavily at mealtimes. As a side point, he was also tranqued-up with drugs to maintain his wartime work.
I don't think any less of Churchill for his vices; it's interesting to know about it. It's a little like those studies of James Bond's drinking which would have proved James Bond was an alcoholic who would have been 'hospitalized'.3 AnswersHistory5 days ago
Have you known people who were members of far-right organisations such as the KKK the BNP etc. and what did you make of them?
The ones I know, they were just poorly-educated and had bad personalities. I'm supposed to respect their free speech and consider their points, but they just seemed to be talking nonsense. It seemed like anyone with a couple of Cs could smash their arguments.
I knew school bullies, co-workers and campaigners. They were all screwball idiots except for the really, really moderate ones who were more conservatives than nationalists.3 AnswersPolitics1 week ago
Trump's tweet: "With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???"
Is this maybe one of Trump's horrendous facetious jokes & if not how would it happen?5 AnswersPolitics1 week ago
I feel like he's been given a really hard time. Yes, he wasn't the best leader, but he wasn't the worst leader either (he was arguably more than the equal of Ed Milliband). He overcame expectations to become leader, and then did much better than expected in 2017. All the major media were heavily negative to him all the time he was leader.
It's a shame his time was marred by anti-semitism and Keir Starmer had to pick up the pieces.1 AnswerPolitics1 week ago
Growing up I always thought Frankenstein was an impressive masterpiece. There is a theory in certain circles Percy Shelley didn't just 'help' Mary Shelley write it but wrote most of it with Mary Shelley making minor adjustments to the handwriting. It sounds a little similar to the theory someone else wrote Shakespeare's plays and I'm wondering whether it's as baseless as that is.6 AnswersBooks & Authors2 weeks ago

I think he is Republican-leaning; in which case he splits the Republican vote, which would be a really good thing.

In the US Bush often appealled to faith but was one of the worst Presidents (& I think Mike Pence would be terrible too because he is so conservative). It's the same here in the UK where Theresa May went to Church every sunday but was an awful leader. And sex cheat Bill Clinton was one of the best Presidents.4 AnswersPolitics3 weeks ago
My Dad, ever the scientist, pointed out to me Joan Of Arc had visions of angels not because they were the real thing, but because the land her family owned had mushrooms which caused hallucinations. So, Saint Joan killed many people, French and English, in her belligerent campaigns. Why has Joan come to be seen by many (like me) as a hero, not a nut or even a fool?20 AnswersHistory4 weeks ago

It's more done in foreign, out-of-the-way places like Australia or Romania or possibly Russia. I think it was also done more in the 20th century when hygiene wasn't such a big thing.4 AnswersPolls & Surveys1 month ago
