Brits Have Given up on Western Values
In yet another example of Britain bending over backwards to prove that they can ... well, ben over backwards... for fetid "multiculturalism" and self-hatred, Tony Blair has "apologized" for England's part in the slave trade!
Blair to express "sorrow" over slave trade
LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Tony Blair will express "deep sorrow" for Britain's role in the slave trade nearly 200 years after the legislation that led to its abolition, Sunday's Observer reported.
Why should he?
His nation was the most active nation on the PLANET to try and rid the world of slavery, doing more than any other western nation in its day to eliminate the trade.
"I believe the bicentenary offers us a chance not just to say how profoundly shameful the slave trade was -- how we condemn its existence utterly and praise those who fought for its abolition -- but also to express our deep sorrow that it ever could have happened,"
Mr. Prime Minister, DO pick up a history book so that you might discover that YOU GUYS are the ones that "fought for its abolition".
You have NOTHING to be ashamed of and NOTHING to apologize for.
In FACT, we should be focusing on Islam as a culprit of slavery because it is still going on in Muslim countries!
This groveling and bowing and scraping is a demeaning posture and no one should lower themselves to such cowardice.
