He's a right trouble causer isn't he?
Of course Britain imposed itself on other countries. That's how Empires tend to be built. It was tyrannical and not good by modern standards, but the past really was a different world with different ideas on morality. That doesn't excuse it of course but it does help explain it.
My guess at answers to the above:Ahem....
Shall we leave the sun to set on the Empire discussion and consider the end of the Queens reign and all that goes with it?
Should Phil the Greek go first, do you think the Queen would chuck-in the towel?
How will the nation react to King Charles and Queen Camilla?
So many more things in the future than those of the past.....
The answer to that is in the story you posted.Should Phil the Greek go first, do you think the Queen would chuck-in the towel?
I’ve never felt particularly well serviced by the queen.The queen (when she was still a princess) said in 1947: “I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service, and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong,”
Well yes, but wouldn't you agree that there is in fact some overlap between the two? When the Queen dies the sun will finally have set, she is the last of the old school, the end of an era.Shall we leave the sun to set on the Empire discussion and consider the end of the Queens reign and all that goes with it?
