Nearly quarter of Britons think Churchill a myth

Moron Monday
Dumbing-down education seems to be proceeding as well in the UK as in Australia and the USA:

"Britons are losing their grip on reality, according to a poll which shows nearly a quarter think Winston Churchill was a myth, while the majority reckon Sherlock Holmes was real.

"The survey found that 47 per cent thought the 12th Century English King Richard the Lionheart was a myth.

"And 23 per cent thought World War II prime minister Winston Churchill was made up.

"The same percentage thought Crimean War nurse Florence Nightingale did not actually exist.

"Three per cent thought Charles Dickens, one of Britain's most famous writers, is a work of fiction himself.

"Indian political leader Mahatma Gandhi and Battle of Waterloo victor the Duke of Wellington were also in the top 10 of people thought to be myths."
