"Churchill was a huge advocate of what has now become The EU. In fact, he was the one proposing a United States of Europe.
Very true Guest, the only thing that you forgot to mention in coming up with that is that, although what became the EU out of Churchill's original notion, Churchill never intended that the UK be a part of it as Britain's loyalties, interests and trading partners were to be found in her former overseas possessions, "The Commonwealth of Nations" - In the long term history will prove him right.
