    I disagree. Outcome is not in our control, because too many other factors are present. We need to do our best even if failure is certain.
    Look, it’s the last few seconds of a basketball game. The other side are winning by 50 points. I got the ball, and a clear run. Should I go for a goal?

      Well, of course. But isn’t that exactly what Churchill advocates here?

      As you’re on the other side of our beleaguered planet, you may not be aware of recent events over here in Blighty. We have a pri’minister who could probably best be described as the antithesis of Sir Winston (though I would prefer the term ‘bumbling fool’). Those who are unable to see his blatant flaws are apologising for his behaviour, saying, “He’s doing his best.” The trouble is, he’s not a six-year-old in a painting competition. In my opinion, his ‘best’ would be to acknowledge that he’s just not up to the job, and step aside.
