|Memorandum of conversation, Yalta Conference, February 4, 1945
During a dinner held at the Yalta Conference, the topic of a casual discussion turned to leadership in democratic societies. Churchill told Roosevelt and Stalin that "although he was constantly being beaten up' as a reactionary, he was the only representative present who could be thrown out at any time by the universal suffrage of his own people and that personally he gloried in that danger."
