Well he may not have engaged in actual treason but did he not advocate policies which would be contrary to British interests?
For example he supported letting Hitler have a free hand in Eastern Europe and he didn't mind letting the Japanese have China.
The CPGB seem somewhat similar.
Potemkin wrote:That's not the same as treason, PI. And besides, who gets to decide what is in British interests and what isn't? Silencing dissenting voices is rather un-British, don't you think?
It must thereore mean that the only patriotic position for an Englishman to take is liberalism and a desire to fight any continental force capable of challenging Anglo-Saxon hegemony in Europe.
Potemkin wrote:Both the BUF and the CPGB believed that their policies were in the best interests of the overwhelming majority of the British people, PI. Liberalism and maintaining the 'balance of power' in continental Europe was in the interests of the British ruling elite. You seem to be identifying the interests of the nation with the interests of its ruling elite, PI.
Late one night in pre-war Munich, a young English woman, dressed all in black and accompanied by six SS officers in full uniform, climbed the dark stairs to her apartment. Once inside she lit two large church candles either side of her bed, their glow revealing enormous swastika banners at its head and silver framed portraits of Adolf Hitler on side tables. After sliding off her boots and gauntlet-style gloves, she stepped out of her long black skirt and blindfolded herself with a Nazi armband before lying down, spread-eagled, on the bed. One man bound her hands and feet to its four corners while another, in what was obviously a familiar ritual, wound up the gramophone and dropped the needle on to a record of Horst-Wessel-Lied, the Nazi anthem. So passed another typical evening for Unity Mitford, according to a startling new biography of the aristocrat’s daughter who scandalised Thirties Britain by becoming a member of Adolf Hitler’s most intimate circle.

but yes, that was a very real fear on the part of the Churchillians and the rest of the establishment although attempts to enact it of course never materialized due to the calling off of Seelöwe. It's one of the reasons he was sent off to the Bahamas.Ironic because Churchill was one of Edward VIII's great defenders.
