Our lost heroes
HOW times change! At one time the British people used to hero worship people such as Winston Churchill, Florence Nightingale, Battle of Britain pilots, Lord Baden Powell, Captain Scott of the Antarctic and the Duke of Wellington who defeated Napoleon.
Now young peoples’ heroes are Simon Cowell, Wayne Rooney, Cheryl Cole, One Direction, ex-drug addict Russell Brand, and even X Factor runners up.
What has happened to the “Great” in Britain?
