British Foreign Secretary Halifax threatens to resign unless UK considers peace with Hitler. Churchill: "Nations that go down fighting rise again, but those who surrender tamely are finished."
Lord Halifax: "We will get better terms from Hitler now, before France goes out of the war & our aeroplane factories are all bombed, than in 3 months time."
Churchill has called a full cabinet meeting to tell them no peace with Hitler: "If this long island story of ours is to end at last, let it end only when each one of us lies choking in his own blood upon the ground."
Churchill: "25 experienced politicians... burst out cheering. I was sure that every Minister was ready to be killed quite soon, & have all his family & possessions destroyed, rather than give in."
