I am grateful to the Graun for drawing this to my attention, from exactly seventy years ago:
“Czecho-Slovakia is the last territorial claim I have to make in Europe. But it is not one I will renounce. Now I have for the first time stated that the self-determination of these 3,500, 000 (Sudentans) at last come into force and that we won’t wait any longer.
“I am not willing any more to stand by calmly without acting and see these madmen, who believe they can mishandle 3,500,000 people, and I have no doubt German patience is at an end. The memorandum which I wrote and which is my last and final word for the British Government contained only the method of execution.”
Remind you of anything more recent?
