Only the 14 stories to scroll past to get to the truth and they aren't accepting comments on it.

From a Peter Hitchens article on "leaving the UK" :



Personally, I think the great years of our global power are thrilling and inspiring, and agree with the conclusion of the Spanish-American philosopher George Santayana on Britain’s imperial era that ‘never since the days of heroic Greece has the world had such a sweet, just, boyish master. It will be a black day for the human race when scientific blackguards, conspirators, churls and fanatics manage to supplant him’.

No doubt many wicked things were done by our empire, but compare it with the Soviet, Belgian, Spanish, and Portuguese empires of the past, or with the hideous Chinese empire of the future.

And you might then concede that, if there must be empires (and it looks very much as if this is so), ours was better by far than any that has ever existed.

We have gained great things from it in experience and knowledge as well as treasure. Many of our former subjects and their descendants still seek and choose to live here, and they are very welcome. But the Empire is over and we shall never again rule the waves or make the great powers of the earth tremble with the might of our Navy.


Why England should leave the UK instead of persuading the others to stay and embrace a golden future
