It must be disheartening.
If you are a Brit.
You are in a world dominated by:
A. a waning ex colony that is administered by a senile, sociopath criminal;
B. a waxing ex victim;
C. a ridiculous, playing a great game of poker, Slavic vestige of the last real Gilbert and Sullivan dictatorship;
B. a population on your Island that is just plug stupid;
like that of your ex colony.
So goes, I guess, the course of empire.
But this time the sun has set on all of us.
How historically funny.
How historically sad.
