It is pretty perverse not to allow Liberal as an answer here. It's not as though he was a minor player for a few years there. He was a member for decades and held senior ministerial position - including Home Secretary, and the First Lord of the Admiralty appointment.

I thought the defining characteristic of that speech was that it gave a laundry list of places the British would fight any invaders. Why, then, does "beaches" get credit, but, for example, "seas" does not? I mean, the Karate Kid fought on the beach, but you don't see anyone making memorable speeches about him.

My favorite Churchill quote was something like, "There is nothing more exhilarating than to be shot at with no result."
