Aw, c’mon guys. He always joked about it:

Why would a prestigious opinion journal like The American Thinker be publishing this BS? This belongs in something like the National Enquirer or the Globe.

Cool story. German intelligence had an extensive dossier on Churchill. If this really happened it is quite fortuitous that the Germans missed it. They always understood that Churchill was Britain’s most tenacious leader and he understood Nazi intentions and their inherent evil from the beginning. He despised Hitler when respectable Westerners were admiring him. Sure the Germans would have released this information to destroy Churchill’s political career if they knew. Seems quaint today but adultery in the 1930’s would not have been well received by the British public.

There were also his failed strategy and costly defeat in the Gallipoli campaign in February 1915–January 1916

The disastrous land operation at Gallipoli was not Churchill's idea or strategy. He simply wanted British ships to sail through the Dardanelles strait.

As pointed out in the article, adultery among the upper classes in England in the 1930s, was fairly common, if frowned upon.

So, Churchill was not perfect.

The last guy that was purported to be perfect was nailed to a cross.

That is an erroneous article. The Doris Castlerosse ‘affair’ has been pretty effectively debunked by Andrew Roberts, among others.

Churchill’s reputation is strong enough to see off the gnat bites, in any case.

No amount of 70 years late, armchair quarterbacking, can remotely dissolve my love and admiration for all things Churchill. If then it was in some way a requirement that this act be done in order for Churchill to accomplish his duties and mission then so be it. It is in no way diminishing of the great man’s intellect , foresight , abilities, or accomplishments. So in our common vernacular of the reduced linguistic and oratorical capabilities of today , I would say, “ WHAT EVAH’ .
