Winston Churchill is NOT a British National Hero! Should Churchill be stricken from the British records? Please support your answer with your opinion or even a fact.(This is a general thread and anything about heroes and UK can be tackled here)

Hitler wanted no part in the war with the UK and wanted to be allies (Heinrich Himmler, Hitler's closest adviser had on many occasions sent envoys to the UK for peace so Churchill was viewed by most of the cabinet as a warmonger). In fact he only made Operation “Sealion” (Germany's plan to invade the United Kingdom) when Churchill decided to help France. And Churchill bankrupted UK, lost the empire and gave in to the USA's whims and caprices . Hence, he is no hero and a disgrace. What do you say to the removal of all his monuments?...

Isnt it obviouse that we would help out the french?
Handing over a neighbouring country to someone trying to creat a master race is plain stupid.
Chances are we would have been the next to be invaded anyway

England should have went to war with Germany when it went into Greece in 1938.

Oh and You are a Nazi Lover.

To answer the question: No I don't think any evidence neccessitates an action as extreme as removing of all of Churchill's momuments. The fact is that he was a good Prime Minister and led the UK through WWII.

And the Hitler wanting to be allies part is slightly ridiculous. What source are you getting this from? Hitler always resented the countries who placed the blame of WWI entirely on Germany. Any intention to be allies would merely be a facade.

Peace treaty with the UK? You mean kind of like the treaty they made with the Soviet Union where Germany betrayed their non-aggression pact?

hmm dodgy thread lol your sources are kinda untrustworthy lol.

U gotta put urself in the PM's shoes. It so easy to sit at the side and critisise every decision he makes, any 10 year old can do that. The final outcome in the end was good. And I guess thats all that matters. and Churchill lead the Britons through those hard times.. so why not reward him for his efforts?
