British people are proud of colonialism

"The British public are generally proud of their country’s role in subjecting the world to colonialism and the British Empire, according to a new poll."

"The British Empire was also a dominant slave-trading power until the practice was outlawed in 1807," "David Cameron has previously said the Empire should be “celebrated”."
