I saw a documentary about the large scale massacres of foreign "savages" (Daily Mail wording) women/children & the invention of concentration camps under Lord Kitchener of the British Empire... hardly heroic stuff is it.

vile, if you have a link then link me to it and I'll give it a watch.

I work with a guy from India and we talk a lot about just world ongoings and films and loads of shit, we just have a good few common interests. Today he came up to me first thing in the morning and he goes 'alright mate, I know you're more open minded than some others, tell me what you think of this article', so I was like 'ok sweet, what do you mean more open minded though? More open minded than who?'. It turns out this bird we work with, she's in her 40's, she's not a kid, he asked her to give it a read and she started getting all pissed off and said that people need to stop blaming the British. This dude is from a country which is post colonial, and she's sitting there clueless, her dumb as fuck slut mind has never left North Liverpool, and she's telling him to stop blaming the British. Unreal.

Sorry mate I don't have a link, it was on either "Yesterday" or BBC4 on couple months back.

That moronic bitch sounds as dumb as they come, who else should be blamed for the British Empire's colonial slaughterings? :huh

It's like saying stop blaming the Germans/Austrians for the Holocaust.

It's not something I'm proud of, nor is it something I feel shame about. It's not a reflection on me as a person. If we're talking about my history and what I have to feel proud/ashamed about then it evens out as half my family were Brits and the other half are from a country that was stolen by Brits.

It's interesting to know the facts about it though. Loads of bad shit was done for the empire. Then it was the same for many other empires throughout history.

I think it's important to stress that nobody today should be punished for it, because as you rightly say, those people aren't alive anymore. But I do think it's important to make it known, because hiding it only breeds this holier than thou attitude which I certainly think exists in our society. Germans are still shamed to this day, people still make jokes about them being Nazis etc. I also think that if people could be awoken to the fact that this country has been built on evil then they might wake up to the fact that the governments that have run it are still capable today of such attrocities and of sugar coating the neo colonialism we have today in places like the middle east.

The era of the British Empire was a vile time to live, a lot of bad shit was done by it. But in hindsight, its probably only as bad as most of the empires in history. Overall its not a legacy that any Brit should be proud of imo.

Think we were a lot better than that. We exported a lot of institutions that allowed good governance to start. The British empires role in ending the slave trade is something we should be proud of. Remember many countries like Mexico wanted to join the British empire for a reason, we weren’t that bad in comparison to others

No, the empire was gone by the time I was born in 1985 well all but for a few territories anyway. It obviously did some horrible things but some countries may benefit today from being a former part of it, I hate how the buck always seems to stop with the empire though, Britain itself was created by colonialism whether it be the Romans, Vikings or Normans, that's how the modern world was formed wasn't it?

But no I'm not proud of it nor am I apologetic for it, I've not killed anyone so it's not my problem.

The soap dodging Brits aren’t all that bad
They founded a prison colony in Australia & I wouldn’t be living five minutes from a nice beach & enjoying the land of milk & honey if it wasn’t for those pasty, smelly, unwashed, whinging, moaning sad fucking seafarers

At least the Brits cut this shit out and aren’t being parasites to their former colonies unlike the Pieces of shit over in France who economically fucked Haiti and won’t stop looting in Africa. The Vietnamese had to kick them out by force to get freedom, the only good thing The Axis Powers did do was humiliate them in front of the entire world.
