Why on earth would I feel any remorse whatsoever for the UK's 'colonial past'?
It had absolutely nothing to do with me and I assure you neither I or any of my ancestors have benefitted from it.
Do you think modern day French, Spaniards, Portuguese, Belgians etc feel any sort of remorse?
What about the descendants of the Mongols, Incas, Persians, etc?
Every one of them had empires that were built on the defeat, subjugation, suffering and exploitation of other peoples, nations and/or civilisations.
The sins of the fathers are NOT passed on.....unless of course you happen to be British!
Geez, another one.
