Winston Churchhill’s father was jealous of Winston. He couldn’t speak a kind word of him. Curchhill, the greatest leader of the day, in the book, "The Last Lion" says, "I would rather had been an apprentice for a brick layer, or run errands as a messenger boy, or dressed the windows in the local shops, if I could have had the support of my father." His greatest enemy and critic was his own father. He never understood his jealousy.
