I also disagree that the people of the world hate the English. For instance, take the judges and lawyers in black-dominated Caribbean and African countries. Have you noticed how proud they are to wear those crazy-looking white wigs in court? If what they had before was so great, why aren't they wearing ostrich plume bonnets and lion head helmets in court? There must be a reason why. I'll give you one guess!
In his book, Remedy the Frauds in Hinduism, Hindu historian , Kuttikhat Purushuthoma Chon stated that the common people of India were delighted with the presence of the English - but their leaders and cruel priests were not.
Rob, I think I must get off the "political" tinge taking olace now. For sure, I don't want to be tossed over to the "you-know-what" board.
