    I watched a powerful movie tonight. Probably the best movie I've seen in a long, long time. It was the story of probably the most amazing Englishman I'd never heard of. In my mind he is more than the equal of Winston Churchill in what he did for his country, and that is really saying something as I great admirer Winston Churchill.

    I'd say that England would greatly benefit from having a few more men like this man today. Can anyone guess who this historic Englishman is? Who's the most amazing figure in England's history that most people don't know about?

    So far, no one is even close. I don't really know the age of the movie, but it has to be fairly recent.

    Here's a clue. This guy was a friend of one of England's most famous Prime Ministers.
