Nothing in the vid was factually incorrect but packaging it within a Brexit message was very odd. What the hell does the UK history of empire building have anything to do with Brexit now? That made no sense to me in regards to Brexit.

Because when we joined the commonwealth members looked at it as us turning our back on our true friends and partners

That’s why

The line saying that there are hardly any British things was incorrect. Britain has obviously created, invented, and popularised more than its fair share of things.

I agree though, using history to make points about modern politics was odd, and not in keeping with Horrible Histories usual remit.

It's a children's gross out comedy with funny songs, it's not really appropriate for it to influence children this way. If this was happening in China, or Russia the BBC withdraw be appalled. And I say that as a big supporter of the BBC.

The website's as bad. Gay/mental health/save the planet shit everywhere instead of real news.
Nothing on those 3 topics on there right now and a load of real news

I go on bbc.co.uk and never read gay mental health planet news on the bbc so it might just be your reading habits, like the lefties who hate read the worst parts of the mail and get annoyed about it.

What I always say us I'm fine with the woke mob IF when they come out and say/do something, they ask "would it be ok if it was the other way round"

In this case if UK TV made a show with a white fulla instead of a curry muncher saying "India didn't create much, not even curry"

Obviously they would be triggered and "outraged"

So if something isn't ok the other way around just don't say it.

Well done on admitting you were wrong. :good
I wasnt wrong, I go on bbc and dont read gay mental health planet stuff its really easily avoidable if you want to, or its all you see if youre really into it.

Unless you meant when I said its not what I see on there but I was on bbc.co.uk not the news section there was no gay stuff on the front page, if youre into gay stuff you have to seek it out on the newsnight section way down the page once youve gone past the real news.
