Churchill or Bust?

Dear Ivor

I am perplexed by the frantic scurrying around of officials after the return of the bust of Churchill by Barack Obama, which under the Bush regime took pride of place in the Oval Office.

Could this be a back handed snub to the British people, or perhaps it is a covert slight to Churchill, or even a rebuff to Sir Jacob Epstein’s anarchic and polyamorous tendencies? Is he perhaps sweeping out the last vestiges of the Bush administration and the rebuke is aimed at them?

Or maybe it was because the item was on loan and it was time to return it and frankly President Obama has got other more important matters like banks and companies going bust on his mind!
