He still hasn't paid his dues. I think they formally forgave him in the mid-2000s. today.

Quite the contrary.....they refuse to have it paid off ! : )

As I remember, Prince Charles attempted to pay Churchill's bill with interest. (the club is most attractive btw... remarkably airy and done up quite simply.)

The book Gandhi & Churchill by Arthur Herman is quite an interesting read:

Yes! Gandhi and Churchill by Arthur Herman. I enjoyed reading the book. The Sepoy Mutiny is presented in terms of the chracters' experiences. Very interesting indeed.
