Although it does not mention the abdication crisis specifically this is an interesting article on the politics of the 1930s and the current political scene: https://www.theguardian.com/society/201 ... -world-war

Thought it might be of interest...

Nothing really very new in the article if I'm going to be honest.

I came on here to link to that very self same article! Nothing new, but it sums up in one place the continuing appeal and fascination of the 1930s; it reflects the fact that the phrase "the 1930s" still carries political and cultural weight today.
