He may have been, but he's been absent since whereas Churchill has been elevated to near-sainthood. The article was published the day after Churchill was voted the Greatest Briton in History. I'm not denying the many good things he did, or even that he didn't deserve the title, but the public perception is VERY one sided.

I'd say the same about the Marx quote - it's important to realise that modern socialism is a lot more egalitarian than Marx originally intended and considered.
