Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Famous passage in Winston Churchill's excellent book The Second World War where he refers to the impending fall of Singapore:

"It was necessary above all to warn the House and the country of the misfortunes which impended upon us. There is no worse mistake in public leadership than to hold out false hopes soon to be swept away. The British people can face peril or misfortune with fortitude and buoyancy, but they bitterly resent being deceived or finding that those responsible for their affairs are themselves living in a fool's paradise."
