Was Churchill a Neo-Con

Date: March 1st, 2005
Published in the New York Times Book Review, March 20th. 2005. p 6.

Churchill a neo-con (Jacob Heilbrunn, Book Review, Feb 27, page 27)? I don't think so.
He famously once said "jaw-jaw is better than war-war!" A proposition decisively rejected by the neo-cons.
He also served in the Liberal Government of the early 1900's that introduced Old Age Pensions and Unemployment Insurance and Labor Exchanges -- all anathema to today's neo-cons.
