Amanpour tours Churchill's bunker

June 6th, 2014

In the lead up to World War II, a top secret bunker was built directly under the UK’s seat of power, Whitehall.

It included everything Britain’s leaders could need during wartime – military planning rooms, bedrooms, and even a secret room (disguised as a bathroom) where Winston Churchill would often speak with Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

    Ms Amanpour, enjoyed your coverage of D-Day. Would like to share with you a few lines written by Sir Winston Churchill.. “Thus, then on the night of the 10th of May, at the outset of the mighty battle, I acquired the chief power in the State, which henceforth I wielded in ever-growing measure for five years and three months of world war, at the end of which time, all our enemies having surrendered unconditionally, or being about to do so, I was immediately dismissed by the British electorate, from all further conduct of their affairs” *

      A Polish officer, who fought with the Allies, could not go home after the war. He was no communist.
      I asked him why he stayed in the UK – he could have gone anywhere in the west.
      He replied that at the end of the war all the allies looked like they would elect their war leaders for the peace. Except the UK.
      "If I wanted to know what democracy was about, that was it. I decided to stay."
