Churchill was a villain — 1 Comment

  1. With a historians hat on I’d say on balance he had bad judgement and was unlucky for most of his life. When he held power before 1929 his instincts were those of a generation earlier at any point you could pick. Playing his father’s cards, or perhaps his mothers.
    Speaking as an Irishman he was the one that pushed the Auxiliaries, and to some extent the Black and Tans which could be argued lead to the disintegration of the empire.
    But I expect it was his term as Chancellor after 1924 that the Villainy came in. The return to the Gold Standard caused utter mayhem to small income people. And like today where we have the House Standard or Asset Standard the poor are crucified.
