There's NO decent food in Laos so you will do very well there with your Brexitburgers! Best stay out of the sun though or they may not let you back into the UK

Had some excellent local food from the street food stalls, not a burger or chip to be seen so nothing to interest brexiters.
With a lao and Cambodian visa will certainly be on Trumps list.

Nice to see that the House of Lords. has repaired the reputation of the UK .

Well as Brexiters, we are spending 4 days in Goa on way to Pune to do a family visit.
Just had a lunch on the beach of fresh grilled fish and chips* +++.,
Are you saying that remainers don't eat chips?

By the way, no other British people in this particular area but plenty of Russian families, all eating plenty of chips, we Brexiters like to mix with 'foreigners'.

(Notice that you and other Remainers ignore the above links about the 2017 year of culture and trade--there will be events for the next 12 months!!--sorry --these non-EU foreigners getting too friendly!))

*Actually here they call them French fries, so is that OK? Very Remainer!

As you often state that Indians are over what the Brits did to them,, what do you think about what one of your adopted countryman (is that the right term though for people who take advantage of the visa rules to spend 6 months in each other's countries as tourists, when you're in reality permanantly living together in both countries?) has said?

Britain has ‘historical amnesia’ on what its empire entailed, should teach colonial history in schools, says Shashi Tharoor

Stating that Indians and Britons have forgotten the Brittish rule in India, Congress Member of Parliament Shashi Tharoor today questioned why the British don't teach their colonial history in schools.

The Express and the Times are both running the same story, it appears.

EMPIRE 2.0: UK to 'improve trade links with African Commonwealth nations' after Brexit

I thought Leavers said it had nothing to do with recreating the British Empire?

I Think I mentioned earlier, Shashi Tharoor is a bit of a Boris Johnson, is/was a Congress member but no longer a spokesperson for them, has praised present Government.
Is a brilliant speaker and writer but goes in for sensation, has had previous scandals etc.
Gave a speech in UK (I think Oxford Union) that UK should pay back some money each year for the Kohinoor diamond was well received as a joke!

Having said all that--history as a subject is very badly taught in Indian and British schools.

I don't know what you mean about the visa system and people living long term. Both British and Indian people are living quite legally just returning home to get a new visa.
(Those who can prove Indian birth and their spouses and families get OCI-- life time visas as we have, other privileges go with it but not voting or purchase of agricultural land)

The Empire was invasion, take-over, stealing land, wealth etc.
Do you really think bilateral trade deals are the same thing??

I don't think they're the same, but what the sub-header says is true, then Whitehall officials are planning another invasion.

BRITAIN will try to boost trade relations with African Commonwealth nations in a move dubbed “empire 2.0” by Whitehall officials.

Not at all.

That seems to be EUSSRs speciality now.

Trying to pick up where the Soviets left off.

Reply to Morpeth---post on other thread.

There was education when the British were in caves. The university system was just for the very wealthy.
Democracy varied with the different States.
The legal system yes, was organised. However the British introduced separate legal systems for different religions (divide and rule), still causes problems but to change now would lose votes!
Military organisation ---absolutely--- rule by the gun of a relatively passive society. Recruiting from the poor --gave them jobs.

A great many good things came from the rule, but all far outweighed by the taxation to fund UK/land use to grow grain for export/ rules regarding what they could grow/who they could sell to. Remember the salt laws?
All this leading to the terrible/ gross poverty of the majority, so they could not store food/ buy better machinery--leading to the millions of deaths of humans and cattle in the great famines (about 16 great famines during British rule).

NONE since independence although weather conditions exactly the same.

Won't bore you with more, but all this happened within living memory, not 1000s of years ago like the Roman invasion to UK.
