E veryone has got in a lather over Michael Connarty 's jibe at David Miliband that his alleged failure to negotiate a tougher EU deal smacked of appeasement, "peace in our time" as Connarty rather thoughtlessly put it. Historical analogies seldom work well, and this one works very poorly. Negotiation is always about making concessions, arguing a case, giving in here, winning there. No useful purpose is served by assuming that every point conceded is an act of spineless appeasement. It is a cheap jibe - made cheaper by Connarty's follow-up comments on Miliband's understandable dismay as the son of a Jewish refugee from s Europe - and it is surely long overdue for retirement from the rag-bag of political rhetoric. But before it is finally pensioned off, let's be clear about what it actually meant. For one thing Chamberlain said "peace for our time" not "in our time".
As a result of this, three million Germans found themselves now living in part of Czechoslovakia. When Adolf Hitler came to power, he wanted to unite all Germans into one nation. In September he turned his attention to the three million Germans living in part of Czechoslovakia called the Sudetenland. Sudeten Germans began protests and provoked violence from the Czech police. Hitler claimed that Sudeten Germans had been killed.

Appeasement in an international context is a diplomatic policy of making political or material concessions to an aggressive power in order to avoid conflict. At the beginning of the s, such concessions were widely seen as positive due to the trauma of World War I , second thoughts about the treatment of Germany in the Treaty of Versailles , and a perception that Fascism was a useful form of anti-communism. However, by the time of the Munich Pact —concluded on 30 September among Germany, Britain, France, and Italy—the policy was opposed by most of the British left and Labour Party , by Conservative dissenters such as Winston Churchill and Duff Cooper , and even by Anthony Eden , a former proponent of appeasement. As alarm grew about the rise of fascism in Europe, Chamberlain resorted to news censorship to control public opinion. The policies have been the subject of intense debate for more than seventy years among academics, politicians, and diplomats. The historians' assessments have ranged from condemnation for allowing Adolf Hitler 's Germany to grow too strong, to the judgment that Germany was so strong that it might well win a war and that postponement of a showdown was in their country's best interests. It came to an end when Hitler seized Czechoslovakia on March 15, , in defiance of his promises given at Munich, and Prime Minister Chamberlain, who had championed appeasement before, decided on a policy of resistance to further German aggression.
