Lady Nancy Astor, the first female MP in Britain. Some verbal confrontations in Parliament between her and Winston Churchill have remained notable

Nancy Astor, born Nannie Witcher Keene in the United States of America, she was the first woman to stand for election and to be elected in England in the early 1900s, to be able to work actively in politics for his country.

The young lady indeed, she had moved across the Channel years earlier and married here Waldorf Astor.

Convinced conservator, her election represented an epochal turning point and she took to heart and brought forward deeply felt issues such as the condition of women and education.

Fighting and resolute, in Parliament he clashed several times with Winston Churchill.

Some squabbles between her and the great statesman they remained famous.

What I tell below is the most famous and, almost certainly, even the cutest.

During a parliamentary session, Nancy Astor completely lost her temper and, turning to Churchill, he told him: “Winston, if you were my husband, I'd put poison in your coffee!”.

My Churchill, and to, he certainly wasn't lacking in irony, and the lady was replied to his provocative statement: “Nancy, if you were my wife, I would drink it!”.
