Churchill was furious.
I wasn't talking about during the war but in 1936 - when he abdicated Hitler was only just really starting his build-up and many many people liked his approach to things - including many in the British parliament and even George VI liked many of his ideas - in the early to mid-30s. They changed their minds later.
It is easy to judge someone based on events later in their timeline but it isn't fair to put later events and attitudes onto an earlier event and what he may or may not have done during the war with regard to the Nazis had no bearing on the reasons why the government were determined to get rid of him in 1936. It was still a couple of years before Time named Hitler Man of the Year (1938)
