“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give” Sir Winston Churchill
Sir Winston Churchill, who served twice as Prime Minister between 1940-1945 and 1951-1955, was widely considered to be one of the greatest wartime leaders of the century after leading Britain through the 2nd World War.
Churchill was passionate about economic social justice, and firmly assisted in passing the People’s Budget; a budget that introduced new taxes for the wealthy, to allow for the development of new social welfare programmes.
As well as serving as Prime Minister, Churchill was an officer in the British Army, an artist, historian and writer. Incidentally, he is the only Prime Minister to have ever won the Nobel Prize for literature.
Sir Winston Churchill, your legacy is definitely a reason for us to be proud to be British.
