“…..descending incontinently, fecklessly, the stairway which leads to a dark gulf. It is a fine broad stairway at the beginning, but after a bit the carpet ends. A little farther on there are only flag stones, and a little farther on still, these flag stones break beneath your feet.”

(Speech in the House of Commons 1938, 12 days after the Anschluss, the Nazi annexation of Austria by Winston Churchill, 1874 – 1965)

John Lentell

7th April, 1969
