The British Ruling Classes and Their 20th Century History
"The United Kingdom, is one of the few countries in the European Union that does not need to bury its 20th century history" #scc16— Dr Liam Fox MP (@LiamFoxMP) March 4, 2016
The son of a thief may not go to jail for his parent's misdeeds, but when he enjoys the inheritance and celebrates his parent's enterprise, it becomes morally reprehensible. Mr Fox may not see it that way, but his tweet does exactly that: It celebrates the British Colonial History, and at the same time, tells that others may need to be apologetic about their history. Yes, indeed, Germans, Russians, Americans and everyone else may have a lot to apologise for, but the British may be in no position to claim the high ground.
