Gents, I would only point out that to portray accurately the "Papa Cocktail" would have been to make it look like he was drinking water--which he would regard as even more preposterous. The filmmakers have to be given a little leeway.
The things he said about drinking water were even more censorious than what he said about drinking neat whisky. You've heard the story of the visit by two Mormons, to whom he offered sherry. "May I have water, Sir Winston? Lions drink it." WSC: "Asses drink it too." -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "ChurchillChat" group.
