  1. For those viewers in the USA:

    The United Kingdom is a small group of islands of no importance whatsoever.
    Before then, we killed millions of people in our Empire.
    Now the UK has completely buggered itself.

    Oh and the Queen had died too.
    And a dick named Charlie has taken over.
    Plus Think Lizzie is in charge of finally delivering the final Brexit blows.
    There is no hope.

    Certainly this wasn’t taught at school, when I was a lad. Just world maps showing the former Empire and Commonwealth, shaded proudly in pink.

    George wouldn’t be too popular with the teachers of that generation for pointing out the dark side, anyway he is not alone, the New York Times brings up the unspeakable history too.
    “In Africa, the queen’s death renews a debate about the legacy of the British Empire.”

    “Enslaved people in the Caribbean were put into forced labour for the benefit of the empire, and when slavery was abolished, the UK gave money to the enslavers, not the victims.”

    Last year I read this history shocker published in 2021 tiled “To Govern the Globe: World Orders and Catastrophic Change” by Alfred W. McCoy. Apparently almost everything I was taught in school about the British, Spanish and Dutch empires (to only name 3 of many) was a lie. And the amount of murder done in the Americas by Spanish conquistadors in the name of Christianity is enough to turn any thinking person into an atheist.
