I like your description of "Rumy" much, much better.

And he's still nattering on. Oy.

While he's quoting Churchill, the least he can do is change a word or two for his own purposes. "We shall fight them on THEIR beaches" would be a good start.

"The Unknown" is my favourite quote from the former MOD. While it may have been used as double speak it nevertheless is meaningful unto itself. Just goes to show brilliance and judgement are not always cohabitants.
