Even op de gang van zaken terugkomend:
As thunderous applause and cheers drowned out the final words of his maiden public speech, a young Winston Churchill reminded his nation of its uniquely bequeathed past and its duty to uphold the civilizing mission’s divinely inspired future. Waving off wisps of unruly hair that animated his oratory, Churchill laid waste to radical Liberals and other critics on the country’s political fringe, declaring:
'There are not wanting those who say that in this Jubilee year our Empire has reached the heights of its glory and power, and that now we shall begin to decline, as Babylon, Carthage, Rome declined. Do not believe these croakers but give the lie to their dismal croaking by showing by our actions that the vigour and vitality of our race is unimpaired and that our determination is to uphold the Empire that we have inherited from our fathers as Englishmen [cheers], that our flag shall fly high upon the sea, our voice be heard in the councils of Europe, our Sovereign supported by the love of her subjects, then shall we continue to pursue that course marked out for us by an all-wise hand and carry out our mission of bearing peace, civilization and good government to the uttermost ends of the earth.'
