But as a descendant, you have profited and continue to profit from the sins of your ancestors. Would the British including the royals be in the same smug economically advanced position as they are now if it hadn't been for wealth "extracted" from the colonies? No.
So while nobody is blaming the descendants for Britain's colonial past; at least, the prejudiced among them should show a bit of tolerance, if not welcome.
Your talking history, and that bares no relevance in regards to today's dilemmas. I really can't understand why any wants more foreigners over here. We have more than enough people to keep the economy going, especially with all the unemployment we are facing. As a nation we should do everything we can do to make foreigners feel uncomfortable and unwanted.
