On this day

in 1901, Winston Churchill entered Parliament for the first time, as MP for Oldham. MPs of the period were unpaid and Churchill was forced to take a speaking tour in order to fund his tenure.

Perhaps our current batch of feather bedded MP's should be reminded of this.

Its also worth noting that this day in 1971 was "D" for decimal day.
