  1. Churchill was cunt to Indians and Africans despite all the help they gave to defend the empire in multiple wars over multiple centuries.

    The best thing the British did was to throw him out after the war and put in a govt that created the NHS and the welfare state and dismantle the empire.

    Gandhi might not have been a saint, but he had India’s freedom and peace in the subcontinent as goals he was prepared to die for.

  2. Evidently he was disgusted with Gandhi presenting himself wearing Indian clothes and sandals.
    Just as racist as when he blamed the 1943 Bengal famine on “Indians breeding like rabbits”. You need to be racist in order to justify colonialism.

  3. Obviously. Churchill was a known British Imperialist and Monarchical loyalist. He would have kept all British territories and never given them independence if he could, he also believed that the more territories the British have, the better the standing of the royals. News to me that he hated Gandhi, but not surprised one bit.
