A Labour Party man and - I understand - a very (typically) "anti" view of Empire. I for one will not be looking at it. I have ordered Dr Kartar Lalvani's new book though..https://www.amazon.co.uk/Making-India-U ... g+of+india

I reserved my comment until others had expressed an opinion. Looks like a piece of narcissistic handwringing replete with preconceptions, inaccuracies and generalisations.

Sad to know that uneducated youth will be taught this rubbish before they avail themselves to the truth.
Teachers with narrow and incorrect views can do great damage to youth who will come in contact with this and other warped info.
We can only hope that our youth will see through his agenda.
