No one wold vote for Churchill in the western world today.
Consider what he said:
If this long island story of ours is to end at last, let it end only when each one of us lies choking in his own blood upon the ground, Churchill declared.
Fight to the death of the last man, woman and child? Could he have meant it? Yes, and when the Japanese seized Singapore, Churchill ordered every British soldier to die rather than surrender: There must at this stage be no thought of saving the troops or sparing the population . . . Commanders and senior officers should die with their troops, he wrote in a telegram that was countermanded on the ground.
He gave a similar die-for-your-country directive to Hong Kong. And in the event of a German invasion, Churchill approved drenching the beaches with mustard gas, without waiting for the enemy to use it first.
The great man himself frequently vowed never to be taken alive and carried cyanide in the cap of his fountain pen.
He said 1940 was a year equally good to live or die and later looked back on it as the most splendid, as it was the most deadly year in our long British and English story.
To paraphrase Churchill himself: Never was so much owed by so many to just one.
David Lloyd George may have been right. The fact is, going to war against Hitler was not in the British national interest. Hitler didn’t want to fight Britain and saw his main enemy as the USSR, and long held out hope that Britain would eventually ally with him to fight the Communists who had long been common enemies.
As it happened, Britain was ruined by fighting the Nazis and ended up having to contend with a turbo-boosted Soviet Union. And the original goal of liberating Poland was not realised. Britain might well have been better off making peace and sitting on the sidelines munching popcorn whilst Watching the Nazis and the Communists slug it out indefinitely.
