Thought for the Day

Socialist MP Bessie Braddock:

“Winston, you are drunk, and what is more is that you are disgustingly drunk.”

Prime Minister Winston Churchill:

“My dear, you are ugly, and what’s more, you are disgustingly ugly. But tomorrow I shall be sober and you will still be disgustingly ugly.'

(There is dispute as to whether the other person was MP Mary Astor and also as to whether Churchill actually made the above comment, although his bodyguard has confirmed that he did).
