The British left India in 1947, if the former states that had been India had wanted to re-combine with it they have had 75 years.....They have been vehemently against it for obvious reasons. Everyone who died was killed by those native to that country.

This is the usual anti British narrative quite common in certain demographics who criticise anything British for anything they can while living off of its coin.

Let it not be forgotten, 75 years to sort stuff out between themselves and we are still being blamed.

Ignore these people and their obvious agendas

Due to ridiculous haste the British managed the partition appallingly. They were in power. They had to do something, I agree, but what happened was a total disaster leaving a terrible legacy.

History has continuing consequences. Perhaps your grasp of geography is better. Heard of Kashmir? Unrest there in 2010, 2016 and 2019. The two countries are permanently in a near state of war as a direct result of how the British managed the partitions.

I know Kashmiris. This is awfully real to them even if you wish to make light of it

Did you do the same during the IRA bombings?

Well thanks for that towering condescension but yes I've heard of Kashmir - been there as well. This didn't happen in Kashmir. It happened in Leicester.
If you want the carry the burden of guilt then good for you.

India wanted independence, it was not willing to wait for a slow safe process, it wanted the British out and that's what it got.....no one British person was allowed to remain, regardless of how many generations they had lived in India. (remember that readers when you hear leftists/neoliberals talk about deportation)

The level of violence was not expected and the British did not invent's India's ethnic tensions. The vast majority of India's administration was actually carried out by Indians themselves.....which was always the case in India as the British were always massively outnumbered there.

Afghanistan anyone?

In any case, as you have confirmed you donít learn from academics I guess you wonít be familiarising yourself with the 20th century history of the Indian subcontinent. You will wait until a suitable person posts their opinion online

You will notice from a certain demographic that the British are blamed if they intervene overseas and they are blamed if they don't intervene overseas.

The one constant pattern is that they blame the same group.

Same old rhetoric. You sound like Trump. Blow a dog whistle, then you wonít need to do any complex thinking

As a reminder, I live happily in modern Britain. It is you who seems anti British. Get hip to the current beat daddyo.

Says the guy who admitted to looking to move aboard only a while ago. (you were right to think of moving because even the nicer parts of Croydon will downgrade)

I think your own posts reveal your attitudes.

I'm English, you aren't and I'll live and die here because it's at my core. That's a loyalty that you will never have.

Well he sad modi was instigating it but only because of what the uk did years ago.
Clearly not the fault of the people causing the trouble as of this weekend. Itís beginning to look a bit like blm blaming the slave trade for all black peoples woes.
Ahh well give the whitey another kicking I guess!

An absolutely crucial point here. Thank you for raising it.

What is happening in Leicester is a reality of 'modern Britain'. To oppose the very basics of why this is happening in the first place is actually, if you strip it down to its very core, 'anti-British'.

The reality of what is happening in Leicester is directly linked to very deliberate policies pursued by British elites. This is a top-down imposition of alien cultural influences/stresses on British streets. And cheered on by them. Celebrated.

I see lots of footage in Right-wing circles being bandied about concerning how the city of Leicester looked during the Queen's coronation. That world is lost to us. It's never coming back.

Nostalgia is wasted energy. What matters now is radical thinking about the future. Maple is right. He is far more 'British' now than I am.

An insightful article. Perhaps Jinnah and Gandhi were as, if not more responsible, for what happened than the nasty Imperialists? Still some will blame the British fir most things. Maybe the black on black crime in London should be blamed on the slave trade
