    Explain millions dying of hunger and malnutrition then.

    More people are still below the poverty line. 22% of 1.4bn.

    Many want to come live in the UK.

    Don't see many wanting to live in NK or IS.

    Well, you can't because they were still cutting off heads and polishing them long after you left.

    Why, it's what you do. Justify current wrongs with historical wrongs. This way you can justify anything.

    You play the game of excusing Kim by drawing comparisons with history and bringing up hypocrisy. It's not hypocrisy, this is the 21st century, and people are now judged by 21st century standards. Honestly, you may as well poo your pants and say, "well everyone did it as a baby, so don't be a hypocrite."

    Colonial rule of India isn't an ancient topic, it happened around the same time as WW1 & WW2 (which the British haven't yet forgotten apparently)

    British rule of India is very similar to ISIS' khilafat in Iraq or Kim's DPRK- the idea is enslaving and oppressing people for the benefit of the oppressors.

    ISIS don't blew up people who are obedient and subversive to them in their 'khilafat'.

    And the British (no not the colonial British but the modern Brits) funds Islamic jihadis under the excuse of fighting communism.

    So by your logic, since ISIS haven't wiped out the entire population of the Iraqi towns they once controlled, now freed Iraqis should be thankful to them for letting them live.

    Tell me how many millions died of malnutrition during the colonial rule of India.

    Do you expect that number to be higher lower ?

    Ancient in the context of North Korea and IS.

    Is that why Indians willingly took over India on behalf of the British just for a regular pay cheque.

    Actually they do, because they're deeply paranoid.

    Not since Afghanistan. Very different times, Soviets were very dangerous, just like China is now.

    Better people than your countrymen have tried to put us in a stack or convert us .If they didn't succeed , what makes you think , you could ?

    Put the visceral hatred down to the fact that the Brits tried .That they didn't succeed isn't testimony to the fact that they didn't try .

    Strawmanning again. 21st century vs history. And ISIS did nothing to drive industry or technology forwards. They have no legacy, just a mess.

    They did try because the BE was about trade a profit not genocide.

    Sorry, they did not attempt to exterminate the entire Indian race, that is a lie.

    Here we go again.

    Padraig, your problem is that you can't admit that your beloved empire was nothing but a brutal, racist and outright criminal establishment which thrived on oppressing and enslaving other races.

    I don't have to excuse any present or past wrongdoing because I don't have to defend a dictator or a drug running cartel oops 'empire'.

    But when the same people who criticize Kim's or IS' brutality justify their empires brutalities, others would call them hypocrites. There is nothing wrong with it.

    So given that the Khmer Rouge perpetrated a genocide, can Nazis be absolved of their crimes?

    Ah, so the empire is great because it developed industry in tbe UK at the expense of its colonies. What an achievement.

    Who's saying they tried to exterminate us ? They tried to discipline us and in doing so caused a lot of casualties , apart from casualties caused due to sheer apathy , raging greed , etc .

    Your countrymen were so ingenious that they abolished slavery and came up with an admirable change in terminalogy .They called it indentured labour .All those people of Indian origin in the Caribbean , Mauritius , Fiji , etc are descendants of those so called "indentured labour ".

    Not ancient in the context of the Nazis, about whom you still talk about.

    Again, SS and Nazi machinery had several Jews. Proves nothing.

    Your legacy is millions dying of famine & the formation of a rogue (and now nuclear) Islamist state.

    Basically the very talk about the legacy of the empire shows how much romanticized the British empire is in Britain. Legacy ? Did Nazis too have a legacy ?
