Imagine living in a parliamentary (sort-of) democracy that has a rich and gloried history of expanding freedom and liberty for its citizens. And in living memory those freedoms were threatened by a global axis of totalitarian regimes hellbent on controlling the world and plunging it into the darkness of tyranny.

Fast forward a few generations and you have swapped sides. You are now supportive of exactly the kind of vicious and terrible political philosophy that you fought valiantly for six long years. You reward genocidal dictators with commerce and political cover while attacking the lone outpost of freedom and self determination in the Middle East.
So what is the “First-World Problem?”
Apparently rich, free, entitled England has no memory…
