Winston Spencer Churchill is NEVER “irrelevant”, particularly when he disagrees with you.
Even if you are the tutor.
I know a certain Australian journo who is less than impressed by being labeld an “unreliable expert” too. Muttered darkly something about 1st class honors masters not being worth what they used to be or something.
I shall continue to annoyingly both use Churchill and to pass my exams.
Because I can.
