Great Quote....

"Embalm, cremate and bury - take no chances!"


Winston Churchill, 1947, when commenting on the death of former Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin uncharacteristically for Churchill, that was known for gentlemanly conduct even with his most ardent political opponents. Churchill blamed Baldwin [who served 3 times between 1924 and 1937] for being completely unprepared for the conflict with Nazi Germany who was the predecessor to the great appeaser, Neville Chamberlain [1937-1940]. He also commented to an aide, prior to Baldwin's 80th birthday, that it would have been better if he had never been born.
