Clement Attlee: “It seems like I have not been clear enough! Then let me leave no doubt about my feelings about Mr. Chamberlain’s future as Prime Minister. Owing to his years of inactivity and incompetence, we find him personally responsible….personally responsible for leaving this nation ruinously unprepared to face the present Nazi peril! We are at war Mr Speaker...at war. And leaving aside whether he is fit to be a leader in peacetime, he has proved himself incapable of leading us in wartime! Therefore, in the national interest, we, the Opposition, are willing to enter into a grand coalition with the ruling Conservative Party, so-called...but not, and I stress never..under the leadership of Mr. Chamberlain, who has lost the confidence of this House. In the country’s interest, man, resign, step down, and let us find a new leader.”
