Yesterday, Number 10 kicked off after the Winston Churchill Charity decided it was a great idea to remove the wartime prime minister’s first name from the charity title. They also erased his achievements and his photo.
The backlash from these woke alterations continued through the day after they stated on the website that the War Time PM’s views were racist and unacceptable. The charity then went into damage management. They re-uploaded his photo and placed a new statement due to mounting pressure from Churchill supporters, but they refused to replace his name, claiming it would be confusing to do so.
A spokesperson for the Prime Minister said: “It’s completely absurd, misguided and wrong to airbrush his giant achievements and service to this country and the trust should think again.” Even though the current PM was upset by the move, the Churchill family were entirely behind the airbrushing of Winston name, saying: ‘The Churchill family is wholly and unreservedly supportive of the wonderful work done by the Churchill Fellowship. Its record speaks for itself.’
