Van When I read this I though uh oh this is a windup this is some spotty teenager in some grubby room somewhere getting off by winding up the old hippies. But then I thought that maybe not I have meet people as xenophobic as this before hatred is often easier than understanding, animus comes quicker to some people than empathy. But I've found it can often be confused or manufactured, I knew this guy whole did this long rant about how he hated ‘paki’s’ and ‘Indians’ and wanted to have nothing to do with them then picked up the phone (it was pre mobile) and ordered a takeaway curry. The Brexit leader Nigel Farage goes on and on about how wonderful Britain and the British are (or at least the English) and then you find out he has a German wife, his children speak German and hold German passports. So we have Van bemoan Europe’s colonial past and putting it forward as a reason for not wanting Britain to be part of the EU when Britain was the biggest imperialists in Europe.
