After the war, Churchill and then the 1945 Labour government both pressured Haile Selassie, the emperor of Ethiopia, not to seek justice. They used territorial disputes in Eritrea and the Somali Ogaden region to make him capitulate and not demand a reckoning.

“Diplomacy is the art of telling people to go to hell in such a way that they ask for directions.”

― Winston S. Churchill



The then British Prime Minister Winston Churchill knew that his Afro poodle named Haile Selassie deep in his heart harbored a burning desire to become just like the European colonialists of the day, so he offered him a deal he could not refuse-- to play the role of a colonialist in both Eritrea and Somali Ogaden on behalf of the British empire and he gets to kiss the royal hand of Queen Elizabeth-- which was a big deal at that time for African warlords aspiring to expand their territories through annexation, conquest and subjugation with the blessing of the British empire.
