The British didn't use the Roman model, that's ignorance.

The Romans ruthlessly invaded and subjugated, that's not how the British acquired an empire. You're ignorant of history.

Do you see what's wrong with that?

Or are you too obsessed with pretending that what the British did was far lighter, almost so light as to be quite nice?

Command a country, extort its assets, commit its weakest to servility, control it to your own devices.

It was Poland. No agreement regarding the Czechs. Think the piece of paper came after the Germans invaded the Czechs.

And there was SFA sent to France.

You're correct, apart from one point: there were no bullet points.

Ignorance should always be challenged, offence should always be caused.

Creating boredom is the only real offence.

Sounds very much like Emperor Palpatine.

Free countries willingly trade with each other. An empire enforces its rule and takes what it wants.

Do Germans take pride in the holocaust?

Many "little englanders" hark back to the Commonwealth, and how we should reject the EU to give trading preferences to the Commonwealth.

You can't control where you're born, or who you are born to. In that sense, it's an accident. The consequences are beyond your control.

You can't have pride in something beyond your control.

Britons who are proud of being British.
