Beginning in the 1950s, reported UFO sightings were rampant in Great Britain. There was even a claim that Churchill ordered that one sighting be classified, in order to prevent mass hysteria in the public. This claim, unsubstantiated, is probably no more than a rumor.
In late 2014, London’s Daily Mail produced a shock headline: “Winston Churchill's ‘bid to nuke Russia’ to win Cold War uncovered.” While the conversation is undoubtedly true, it is hardly new. It’s been known for decades that Churchill voiced such a thought several times in private conversation in 1946-47. What is not true is that Churchill ever “bid to nuke Russia.”
