    The original Irish language was Gaelic, which not a bit like French or English. French in Australia? I honestly couldn't even begin to imagine French with an Australian accent without laughing.

    We are well aware of your pro- Pakistan policy ever since 1947. Do you really think that anyone in GoI would believe in this 'UK- India Special relationship' farce ?

    People said Brexit will never happen, yet here we are.

    Scoxit will happen by the end of the decade.

    Irish reunification will follow 5 years after.

    But they'd have the respect of the world & the financial backing of the EU.

    India's growth rate during British rule was 0.5%.

    Only if they did what the EU told them to reduce their deficit, which basically means they wouldn't be independent.

    Oh really, you have figures that far back, funny how China's share of global GDP fell even faster before 1947 and rose even faster thereafter.

    Funny how Hong Kong, Gibraltar and Falklands all have GDP/capitas dozens of times that of India. You need to stop playing the BLaMe game.

    Anybody with two nerve cells left in their brain can figure out that the richest country in the world was reduced to being the poorest in less than 100 years, all under British rule.

    Hong Kong, Gibraltar and Falklands became rich due to their own enterprising people, nothing to do with British rule. New post WW2 laws under the UN meant Britain could no longer exploit her colonies. It was primarily the US which stopped Britain from making colony specific trade laws and open up colonies to other countries that led to Britain losing grip on all its territories. It was part of the treaty with the US which transferred all of Britain's technologies and power to the US in exchange for winning the war.

    Basically, what it means is the remaining colonies did well because Britain could no longer interfere in their economies.

    Oh really. And how did such a rich, advanced country with >20 times the British population end up under British rule? The world economy changed from local market economies to an industrial global economy under the British empire. The whole of Asia's share fell because they were a relatively backwards collection of non-industrialised farming nations. We could only work with what we had in terms of the people. Very difficult to industrialise a nation when people keep uprising too. China's GDP fell at 3 times the rate of India's during the same period.

    How come India didn't become rich due to their own enterprising people?

    Have you ever been to the Falklands? Pretty much everyone there is British.

    Including or excluding the sheep?

    As I pointed out earlier , we are in unanimity of the greatness of Great Britain .In the past.The future is another animal altogether .Lets stick to the OP & your thesis that everyone chooses to immigrate to the Anglophone countries coz they're the coolest & hip est places (whatever they mean in your lexicon ) on earth but the Scots & the Irish want out .
