UK Political humor.

The year is 1945 Clemente Attlee is prime minister. One day he is relieving himself in the restroom at the House of Commons. The door swings open; it’s the leader of the opposition, Sir Winston Churchill.   Churchill spy’s the Prime Minister at the urinal and he strides purposefully to the furthest end.  “Feeling a bit stand-offish today are we, Winston?”  Asked Attlee.

“No” said Churchill majestically unbuttoning his fly. “But, whenever you see anything big, Clemente, you nationalize it.”

Notation: PM Attlee was Labour (Progressive party).  Churchill was, of course Tory (Conservative)
