Having watched the series for many, many years I have seen incredible cultural documentaries, crazy and weird situations, wonderful landscapes, amazing historical facts...and the cars...always the cars.
If however, people think that he is a big racist who thinks England is superior to everything else, I suggest that THOSE people look again. Because there has been no mainstream presenter more critical of Britain than he.
And he also LOVES cars. NO one who talks about cars like this can be a bad person.
So let me guess. You must be Anglo but not American.
No one in America cares about the little British skirmish in the Falklands.
The Falklands was just Britain pretending they still mattered to the world.
The Falklands should be British and Argentina definitely invaded illegitimately.....
..... but that's a standard never applied to the British or Americans. The laws governing legality of invasion (like all laws) are illegitimate when certain nations are exempt.
1)Weird. They have wells already and are planning more.
Six new wells are scheduled in 2015 and this will mark the first new exploration activity in the region for more than two years
The floating rig will drill in six sites.
The Falkland Islands have not been a happy hunting ground for oil companies in recent years. The initial enthusiasm about the hydrocarbon potential in the region has been somewhat tempered after a series of failures. Falkland Oil and Gas had disappointments at two major prospects in 2012 called Loligo and Scotia. Neither site was found to have commercially viable reserves of the black stuff.....
2) I forgot that debtors by nature are at fault.
Read the article please.
3). Anglo is relevant. Apparently invading countries without just cause and exterminating or enslaving native peoples is only legitimate if you are America or England.
Those are all just though because Anglos are always always in the right, right?
If you wanna argue about Anglo racism I'm very well informed.
You're correct that every nation and group is responsible for doing something bad but that doesn't excuse the Anglos from responsibility.
The British are by and large pretty egalitarian and high minded but that's easy to do after you lose power and want to look good.
You guys just take orders from Washington these days because you know that if any non Anglo nation becomes dominant you have centuries of bad karma to pay back.
Your own people will come for you first. China hasn't forgotten the Opium wars.
Africa still pays the price or imperialism.
Arabs have not forgotten how you and the French stabbed them in the back.
Russia remembers how you and the rest of Western Europe marginalized and vilified then for most of history and even after that they still saved your ass in both world wars.
Just look at Ukraine and Syria.
Scotland and Ireland remember what you've done.
I knew Scottish independence would fail. The system can't be allowed to crumble or the Anglos would all have to own up.
But yeah Argentina probably brought it on themselves. Let's alienate them further. The goal is to alienate every potential ally with Anglo superiority and selfcenteredness right?
