Before I joined, I was dragged around the world as a Pads Brat. Father was a 37 year RAF veteran. Not once did we have a conversation about the 'Empire.' Not once did his mates chat about it when they came over for a beer, not once was it mentioned when I was old enough to join him for a Pimms in the mess. I have never heard it mentioned anywhere since I left school in 1974.
Bugsy is probably telling the truth - he has probably heard lots of talk about empire in the Naafi -
Picture the scene hes kicked of on one of his DDR is great, glory be the socialist republics, - youse brit oppressors, stealing potatoes, Right wing rags you should read the morning star, British gobment bollox rants
Who here wouldn't now be extolling the virtues of Empire and Cromwell particularly actions around 1650,
FFS - Bloody sunday is probably attributable to Bugsys airborne exploits - poor feckers probably had PBSD triggered by mick accents.
