Recent publications concerning the Spanish Civil War have shown that British policy towards Spain was governed by a fear of left wing politics, as well as class prejudice and racism towards the Spanish proletariat. This article focuses on the activities and opinions of diplomats stationed in Spain during the conflict, revealing that their reports were decisive in forging the policy of Non-Intervention. Specifically, it examines correspondence between the Barcelona Consulate and the Foreign Office which occurred during the first six months of the war. It uses Norman King, the Vice Consul in Barcelona as a case study, establishing that his reports serve as a pertinent example of Britain's malevolent neutrality
