Winston Churchill mocks Clement Attlee – who got the last laugh

Churchill mocked his wartime deputy prime minister, Clement Attlee, on many occasions:

(1) “An empty taxi arrived at 10 Downing Street, and when the door was opened, Attlee got out.

(2) “He is a modest man with much to be modest about.”

(3) “Attlee is a sheep in sheep’s clothing.”
