Macmillan 's Limited Choice - From Niall Ferguson's "Empire"

"In the early 1950s, Harold Macmillan declared that the choice facing the country was between 'the slide into a shoddy and slushy Socialism (as a second-rate power), or the march to the third British Empire.' After Suez only the first option seemed to remain."

"When I survey this work as a whole I find I have drawn a picture of a vanished age."
Churchill, Winston S.; "My Early Life" (1930)
