    23% of Britons say Churchill didn't Exist.

    I knew the majority of my compatriots had degenerated into mindless, hedonistic morons, but even I was shocked by the findings of a new poll.

    23% of people questioned believe that Winston Churchill was a fictional character!

    The ignorance knows no bounds...
    47% said the same about Richard the Lionheart
    23% for Florence Nightingale

    And 3% didn't even believe that Charles Dickens was real!

    The flip side of the coin?

    58% of these cretins believe that Sherlock Holmes is a real historical figure.

    I don't know whether to laugh or to cry...

    T'would have been loverly!

    Had Churchill actually been a fictional character 600,000 innocent German civilians would not have been burned alive.

    But he was indeed real, and I hope is burning in hell right now.

    Next thing is that they would question the existence of Hitler himself eyes:

    Instead of questioning such things as the existence of Churchill, couldn't they question the existence of God and/or the "great" prophets who are known to be and have wandered around the face of Earth?

    No doubt the people questioned believe Santa is real, Fairies live at the bottom of the Garden and Gordon Brown is a great PM.

    Nah surely even such retards can't believe the last one.

    23% of Britons are ignoramuses

    I suspect that these are the people who don't REALLY believe that anythinbg alleged to have occurred before they were born really happened.

    It was over 60 years ago. Let the dead rest in peace.

    still baffled?

    cyfarchion

    I will assume that we are talking about bombing raids during the war, I thought it was more than that actually which is why I queried it. The thread seemed to be prompting a discussion on how little people know about the past. Then someone posts an attack on one of the greatest leaders this country (or any country) has ever had, I query it and get told to let the dead rest in peace. (I apologise if that was not aimed at me). Surely letting the dead rest in peace is to ignore history altogether as they are all dead.
