Oh, me, too! I'm coming out there, as soon as I can hitch up the team to the covered wagon. :)

Though not as much a p*sser as it was to one third of the world. I know there's humour in your comments too, but the sun never set on the British Empire because it was daylight robbery! I'm not loyal to this class-divided country. Even hippy s*** is more appealing!  ;D  :)

True. That's why I said "africans and indians enjoyed being enslaved." Trying to be ironic and all.
Living in a former colony, I remember being told by a teacher that the Maori were lucky they were colonised (love that word) by the British and not the French. who were much nastier.
In our bicentennial (1969?) NZ's history began with the arrival of Captain Cook. A thousand years of Maori history was simply sidelined.
We were repeatedly told that Adam and Eve, Noah and David and Goliath were facts, yet Maori creation tales were passed off as myth. Silly Maoris. Should be more grateful blah blah blah.
But I also try to remember that that is how it was then. Countries worth were measured by their empires, and they were the must have accessory of the ninetenth century. Both God and Darwin seemed to say that it was their natural right (ney their duty) to civilise the savages.

Just out of asking--
Like they did when the Bealtes got their MBE awards.

Were is the British Empire all speak of?
This is why John gave his back--He said there was no empire & for him to be a Knight.
He did not see the same rights ect a rare knight had--just a title thrown in with a free membership to the castle--
25 pounds a month & a  metal that looks like a stick with some string threw it.

No what is ment when so odd distsnt place is

The magasinewas not able to go to a near by or travle with in the region
to verify.
Thus they made up places that The Beatles had played in the past.
This created partial trueth like the enquire & globe ect & the people bought the half trueth.

The trueth ----Yes  a distant time ago the Beatles did perform there.
Now the editor uses trick photo & puts stock current photos of them & combinds to make it
look like they are together.

Again I see all can't take an example & turn all said out of context.
No Wonder John had such a hard time with american press & others.

Like you all--You see what you want to & do not want to read it.
You allways want to see bad what some person writes instedof the good.

Like George stated  Exter Texter would be nice--Or take your time reading & don't be so pompus.
You are common wealth & not royalty.
Don't act so high & mighty  & clap your hands.

You do not have the jewlery to rattle.(JOHN LENNON)

I meant that you are becoming increasingly more difficult to understand. It would also be handy if you stayed, more or less within the subject of the thread and didn't go off on tangents.

He's just misquoting bits from the Anthology series, BM, about the Beatles' MBEs. Paul said the MBE let you get into St. Paul's Whispering Gallery for free (not the castle). He's also quoting George about the MBE being "a ruddy piece of leather with a wooden string through it". I believe that's the exact quote; I'd need to play that part again to be sure.

The connection of the Beatles being awarded MBEs and the history of British (or anyone else's) imperialism is not quite clear to me. Perhaps because the title MBE has the word "empire" in it?

If Djinn took some time to learn his history and check his spelling he'd be a little easier to understand!

The government were thinking of changing 'Empire' so that it would be Order Of British Excellence. Pity they didn't.
