Obama returns Churchill bust, requests one of Chamberlain

I can understand why he wouldn't want the crotchety old warmonger around.

The bronze by Sir Jacob Epstein, worth hundreds of thousands of pounds if it   were ever sold on the open market, enjoyed pride of place in the Oval Office   during President Bush's tenure.

  further four years, the White House said: "Thanks, but no thanks."
