Daily Dose

From The Last Lion: Winston Spencer Churchill, Defender of the Realm, 1940 - 1965, by William Manchester & Paul Reid


"Though he cared little about a person's sexual preference, Churchill was often quick with clever barbs about homosexuals.  Of the notorious Tom Driberg -- Beaverbrook protege, Labour MP, and serial seducer of young men -- Churchill remarked, 'That's the man who brought sodomy into disrepute.'  When he learned from MPs in the smoking room that Driberg had married a somewhat plain woman, Churchill announced, 'Buggers can't be choosers.'"

From  4 Crosscurrents, November 1942 - December 1943
