Anti-appeasement was ineffective because those who were against the government's appeasement policy lacked leadership and failed to unite as a single, strong voice. Criticism of appeasement came most often in the form of sporadic outbursts from an individual to little effect. The few times that a group of anti-appeasers were brought together to take a stand against the Conservative Party's official policy, they were not all fully committed to making a potentially dangerous political move and thus were unable to change the tide of political opinion.
