What have the British ever done for us?


So what have the British ever done for us anyway? Apart from the Rule of Law, that is; the Enlightenment with its University model of education and emphasis on acquiring knowledge, that I grant you; the Wes1200px-Flag_of_the_United_Kingdom.svgtminster system of parliament yes; freedom of speech, freedom of movement and association, freedom of religion perhaps that too, along with many other person freedoms, okay, I’ll give you that one; the English language, obviously; the instruments of progress and prosperity, the free market, and the capitalist economy that turned what was a barren continent into a flourishing continent that is home to some of the world’s most livable cities, yer alright… But, I ask you, apart from the Rule of the Law, the Westminster system, the English language, the Enlightenment, personal freedoms, the market economy, civilisation, progress and learning… What have the British ever done for us!
