Hypocrites' praise for wartime leader; FEEDBACK.

AT a time when Britain and the rest of the free world celebrate the 50th anniversary of the death of our greatest ever leader and Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, I find it extremely annoying that every British Prime Minister since Edward Heath in 1973 have betrayed the British people by giving away centuries of hard-won rights of self-governance and democracy.

The cradle of democracy is now dictated to by unelected commissioners in a far off land.

I watched David Cameron lay a wreath and pay tribute to Churchill and couldn't help think what a hypocrite he is.

Here he is praising Churchill for keeping this nation free while he and the Coalition government continue to hand over our sovereignty to the European Parliament - one of the most corrupt money wasting organisations in the world.

We really do need a strong leader, someone with the strength and purpose of ridding this country of its EU shackles. This is not what Churchill had in mind for a free Britain. This is not why millions of brave men and women gave their lives.
