    What happens in General, stays in General.

      Winston Churchill led a riot in London in 1894 at the age of 19. Presumably you would have had him shot dead in the street.

          Am on primitive hand held device so cannot do linky right now. The Empire Theatre introduced measures to separate prostitutes from respectable individuals. Churchill led the riot against the decision.

            Well not according to the Google searches I did. You've so made this up.

            Hence linky please.

            (Hang on.... http://www.nickelinthemachine.com/20...cester-square/) Found something.

              That was your tedious link. Here's something from the Oxford University Press website:

              http://fds.oup.com/www.oup.co.uk/pdf/0-19-927934-9.pdf

              From Churchill by his Contemporaries, edited by Charles Eade, 1954.

              Chapter 1, 'The Youngest Man in Europe' Pages 12 - 13 (on extract from linky):

              'During his final term he also plunged for the first time into public controversy. When the eminent moral reformer Mrs Ormiston Chant organized a campaign to exclude prostitutes from the bar of the Empire Theatre in Leicester Square, Churchill incited some of his fellow cadets to riot and pull down the screens which had been put up to separate prostitutes from theatre-goers. 'Ladies of the Empire', Churchill declared in an improptu speech, 'I stand for Liberty!'

                Hardly a riot was it. I've seen two years old have a bigger tantrum.

                  See, now you're making excuses for riotous behaviour and damage to property.

                    Bet going for a pint with you is a real riot.

                      Your unprincipled double standard fail to surprise. The man incited a riot.
