The Cabinet, while wanting now to guarantee states against aggression, was still opposed to giving any state so protected carte blanche. Nor, as these three Cabinet meetings show, were they prepared to fight for all the borders of Europe regardless. 11 Furthermore, Britain had no wish to go to war to defend what Chamberlain cavalierly described as the ‘little states’, whatever that might mean. Turkey, the crossroads between Europe and Asia, caused more anguished discussion. If the British talked to the Turks, the Italians would regard this as hostile in a way that they would not if the British spoke to the Poles, Russians or French.

This was why Halifax and Lord Chatfield, the Minister of Defence, realized that good Turco–Soviet relations were essential. 95 As Halifax reminded his colleagues, Turkey was a ‘key’ power, and ‘that it was essential to retain her friendship’. 96 Should these founder altogether – as they soon did – then the Turkish rôle as a bridge between Britain and the USSR would be all the greater. Were Turkey to fall into Axis hands, moreover, then the enemy would have access through Anatolia to the vast oil riches of the Middle East and the route to India and beyond.
