Quarter of Brits think Churchill was myth: poll
Britons are losing (read: Westerners have lost) their grip on reality, according to a poll out Monday which showed that nearly a quarter think Winston Churchill was a myth while the majority reckon Sherlock Holmes was real.
Meanwhile, 58 percent thought Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective Holmes actually existed.
UKTV Gold television surveyed 3,000 people.
