I want to complain about this content:

  • and while we're on the subject of English history... any journo worth hisher salt should interview the EDL leader about it: say, since the Norman Conquest (if he knows when, or what, that was!)... through the Dark Ages (not much enlightenment there...), the age of state-sponsored (sorry, throne-sponsored) robbery on the High Seas (Drake and his motley crew), through to slavery... forced expulsion of peasants in the Clearances... forced child labour in Dark Satanic Mills... the Chinese Opium War (good old Blighty forcing China at gunpoint to take opium [...] as a substitute for silver to pay her tea import bills... World War One, where millions died fighting to save the 'honour' of inbred chinless wonders (not a few English, including descendants of Queen Victoria)... through to the present, where we were and remain at the heart of the global financial services meltdown. Nothing much to write home about there.
