Just had the BBC London local lunchtime news on the telly, and in the clip about the BNP using images of Winston Churchill on their leaflets, which has understandably caused a bit of a stir, the news-clip voiceover then went on to explain who Winston Churchill is.

OK, accepting that sometimes it helps to put news items into context, but surely everyone knows who Winston Churchill is?

Or is the education system now so ruined that one of the most famous people in British history is a mystery to a large swathe of the UK population?

[[bangs head in despair]]

I can’t find the video clip on the BBC site – yet. I am out this evening (Moorgate train geek event), but if anyone can catch it on the 6:30 news and *cough* make a copy, would be appreciated.
