John Lennon may have been beaten in a list of Great Britons by WINSTON CHURCHILL but his widow YOKO ONO still thinks he was a saint.

Churchill was voted top in a poll of Great Britons last year (02), leaving Lennon trailing in 8th position. But Lennon's wife Ono says the pacifist comes way above the war-time British Prime Minister on her personal list.

Ono says, "I really think John was a great force and John is still a great force.

"I'm saying we're in a society where Churchill's a saint. If he is a saint, John certainly is."
