I hate the Tory party, their men, their words and their methods". Throughout his political career, Churchill's relationship with the Conservative Party was stormy;  Addison noted that his "loyalty [to the party] was never absolute".

His response to the Rhonda Valley unrest and anti-socialist rhetoric also brought condemnation from the left, who according to Addison viewed Churchill as an "authentic reactionary", "the true instinctual representative of imperialism, militarism, and what in Britain passed for 'the class war'.
He worked hard; he put his proposals efficiently through the Cabinet and Parliament; he carried his Department with him. These ministerial merits are not as common as might be thought.
