|I need to charge up my phone asmmedical.com Say what you will about Churchill, Cripps and Clarke, not one of them modelled themselves on the Kids From Fame’s optimistic declaration that “We’re going to live forever”. It is true that, in accord with the song’s next line, Churchill did indeed learn to fly. But he did so for the danger and adrenaline rushes of early aviation, and very nearly killed himself with a crash landing. After more brushes with sudden death than Evel Knievel, and having shunned the doctors’ advice about alcohol, dietary and smoking habits for half a century, he died tragically young, perhaps inevitably, at 90. Despite his abstemious nature, the teetotal vegetarian Sir Stafford departed a few days before his 63rd birthday. Kenneth, meanwhile, despite treating orthodox medical advice with Churchillian disdain, recently turned 73 looking enviably robust.
