In all fairness to you countrymen, GB was once the pre-eminent world
power and the wealthiest nation the earth had seen. Both a source of
pride, certainly. In those days "imperialism" wasn't a bad word.

Good point. It should also be noted that if it hadn't been for British
Imperialism, and the earlier Colonialism, many of the people on this list
(Myself included) would never have been born in the first place. Just
something to consider for the next round of, "Oh what a horrid and soulessly
evil thing the British Empire was!"
