When the Independence Bill was being debated in British Parliament in 1947, Winston Churchill had angrily remarked –

Power will go into the hands of rascals, rogues, and freebooters. Not a bottle of water or loaf of bread shall escape taxation; only the air will be free and the blood of these hungry millions will be on the head of Attlee.” 


Who was Churchill? Why did he owe 13 bucks? Did he drink too much?
