Vote Leave Churchill

Nicholas Soames MP may be the punchline of one of Westminster’s most well-worn jokes — but the grandson of Britain’s greatest ever wartime leader is still considered the pre-eminent keeper of the Churchill flame.

Let’s just say he’s not best pleased with the latest salvo from the anti-EU Vote Leave campaign:

Vote Leave Soames Churchill

Right-wingers seem to find such imagery irresistible — irrespective of the context.

The laughable ‘pro-union’ Tory Workers campaign also looked to invoke Winston Churchill earlier in the year. That’s the same Winston Churchill that brought in the army to break a miner’s strike, while expressing a desire for “a little blood-letting”.
