Dalton Newfield writes in an article published in the USA re the sordid history (and inevitable failure) of the Churchill family's promotion of the fantastically expensive The Collected Works in 1974.

"I am more than a little surprised that the Churchill family gave their support to this money-grubbing project". "It would be wonderful to own such a work". "It would be wonderful if my - or even any US library - could own the set, let alone risk using it".

"It would be wonderful if greed were not always the family's motive".

"WSC was not unconscious of money - quite the contrary - but he did put out abridgements, cheap editions, etc., so that people at all levels could enjoy his works".

"What pains most is that the idea was all so un Churchillian", Mr Newfield concluded.

Demand for an investigation into the purchase of The Chartwell Papers by the National Lottery Commission

Correspondence with The National Trust. The whereabouts of the gifts presented to Churchill by Foreign Governments and Heads of States which were formerly displayed at Chartwell? Also, in the light of recent Churchill family heirloom selling at auctions, how safe now are all the contents of Chartwell? (including the extraordinary story of how Chartwell was bought by Churchill's friends for the nation, but how the contents are (alarmingly) only on loan to the National Trust).

PRESS RELEASE
January 18th 2000.

It is sad to read the many criticisms of the contents of The Dome after such a vast expenditure of money and effort. As long ago as February 1998 the Committee of The Churchill Society feared that this might be the result after Ms Page of The New Millennium Experience Co Ltd refused to consider having the society's exhibition stand installed there in honour of Churchill and his Comrades-in-Arms.

In the event - the Society's comprehensive 231 page web site has attracted from all over the world more visitors since its opening than are likely to ever visit The Dome.

____________________________________

PRESS RELEASE
July 15th 2000.

It is immensely sad to observe what a disaster The Dome has been.

The effects of this staggering and shaming failure, heightens the overwhelming sense of loss that many older people in England share today. It will cast its shadow over the next generation, and history will conclude that it mirrored accurately our generation's loss of national identity, purpose; our former morality, good artistic taste, self confidence and national self respect.

The trigger to this catastrophe was pulled when the Prime Minister of the Conservative government (John Major) ordered the independent (!) Lottery Commission to give in to the Churchill family blackmail and pay out the very first Lottery Prize to them of £12,500,000. (they had threatened to sell Churchill's war time papers by auction).

By that infamous deed, the children of the nation's most illustrious hero, signalled to young people that  'money comes before morality'  and that the Lottery Commission was an easy touch. The Dome was funded from Lottery Funds.

A Public Enquiry should now take place into both of these scandals.
