Because it was a masterpiece of Old English and an insult to the French! Every word of that speech was the way it would have been said in England in the year 1000, even to the unusual wording "landing-grounds". Every word that is, except for one. He said "we will never surrender" and surrender is a French word and he was disgusted at the way they had capitualted to the Germans.

For the 50th anniversary of the speech there was a black tie dinner attended by several members of his family as well as Margaret Thatcher. I was fortunate enough to sit with her for about ten minutes as we enjoyed two glasses of wine and she lightheartedly compared her own style and public perception to Winston. There is also a restaurant/pub in Fulton named Sir Winston's in honor of that brief moment in history.
