I mean, seriouisly, get a grip. Harry Enfield one quite famously had a sketch character that was a German tourist that would constantly apologise for the war. We, at least I, was always laughing at the characters inherent feeling that he had to apologise for something he wasn't involved in. Do I expect the Japanese to apologise today for their conduct in the war? Of course not. Do I expect Putin to apologise to the Russian electorate for Stalin? Should we demand apologies from the Vatican for the Romans, I mean what did the Romans ever do for us? How about we get Sarkozy to say sorry about William the Bastard whilst we at it? We didn't need the Mott and Bailey thank you very much.
God it's all so thoroughly depressing and pathetic isn't it? It's all so easy on the Left to look at somewhere like Africa and say, 'well it was the British that colonised it, it's all their fault' but guess what it isn't my fault at all. Slavery? Major suckage for the people who were slaves, a crap life indeed and an affront to the very principle of liberty. But I'll be buggered if I'm going to say sorry for it because it was nothing to do with me, just the Australian Prime Minister is not responsible for the treatment of the aboriginees decades ago. Frankly I'm surprised he hasn't tried to blame us for colonising the place and askled Brown to apologise too.
Update: Oh look, apparently we should apologise too!
