We are invited to vote in favour of this proposal which has been put forward in the document and it is certainly a very undisputed proposal, as is the amendment that has been postponed by the opposition. For my part, I am not in a position to agree with the measures taken and, since the Chancellor of the Exchequer has put his side so forcefully, I will try to approach the matter from a different angle, if I may. I have always believed that peacekeeping depends on the accumulation of deterrents against the aggressor, with a sincere effort to remedy the situation. Mr. Hitler`s victory was, like so many famous fights that determined the fate of the world, the closest. There can never be absolute certainty that there will be a fight if a party is determined to give in completely. When we read the words of Munich, when we see what is happening hour by hour in Czechoslovakia, when we are safe, I am not saying parliamentary approval, but parliamentary tolerance, if the Chancellor of the Exchequer gives a speech that in any case tempts the fact that it was inevitable and, indeed, just: , and all on this side of the House , including many members of the Conservative Party, who are vigilant and carefully guarded by the national interest, it is clear that nothing was at stake as far as we are concerned, it seems to me that we have to ask ourselves what this was and all this agitation? Eight months later Chamberlain was forced to resign and replaced by Winston Churchill. While the Munich Pact would become synonymous with “appeasement”, some historians believe that, since the German and Italian air forces in September 1938 were twice as strong as the British and French air powers combined, the Chamberlain agreement gave the British army valuable time to strengthen its defence to finally defeat Hitler. Chamberlain`s return was not well received. On the same day, 15,000 people protested against the Munich Accords on Trafalgar Square, three times more than at 10 Downing Street. Due to Chamberlain`s continued manipulation of the BBC, this news was largely repressed.

[5] Labour spokesman Hugh Dalton publicly stated that the paper Chamberlain had turned on was “torn apart by my struggle.” [6] The incredulous Chamberlain, Isaac Asimov, published “Trends” in July 1939, which spoke of a world war in 1940. He later wrote, “I was too conservative” (about when the war was about to start). [7] Churchill`s great disagreements with John Simon and Chamberlain necessitated war with Germany to defend Czechoslovakia. Churchill felt that Czechoslovakia had been sacrificed to maintain peace with Germany, and that they had “abandoned to themselves and said that they were not receiving help from the Western powers, [the Czechs] were able to make better terms than they would have obtained.” Churchill also used his speech to highlight the hypocrisy of forcing Czechoslovakia to abandon part of its sovereign territory without a referendum. He said, “No matter how you say it, this particular block of land, this mass of people who must be handed over, has never expressed a desire to enter Nazi rule.” This violated the principle of self-determination, which stipulated that “liberal and democratic” nations should be protected from being adopted by totalitarian governments, an idea that Churchill strongly supported.
