Highlight/Context

In 2002, Winston Churchill was voted greatest Briton.




Evening Standard:

Diners at Blighty UK cafe in Finsbury Park drink from Churchill mugs underneath model Spitfires and Union flags. They can admire a Second World War air raid shelter and pose for pictures alongside a sculpture of the wartime PM, whose extraordinary achievements are currently being celebrated in hit movie Darkest Hour.

The cafe boasted a striking street art mural of Churchill’s two-fingers pose alongside the slogan “double shot”, claiming that he was ordering a double espresso. It had to be scrapped after vandals repeatedly defaced the design by spraying abuse including “scum”, “warmonger” and “imperialist”.

Protesters are also objecting to Blighty India, a second cafe in nearby Tottenham, for its neon portrait of Gandhi, Bollywood posters and Indian flags, and to the chain’s branding celebrating Commonwealth countries.
