    you'd think people would have realised africa is a lost cause.

    its also curious to consider how much of that money gets filtered off to fund wars and corrupt governments. a real benefit im sure you'll agree.

    infact, im beginning to see the error of my ways. i should really be donating all my money to africa... :rolleyes:

    Theres too much talk about the BNP. Its not like theyll ever get in power. Well they might if we all went mad and voted for them.

    Once i saw this old woman on the tele who was a BNP supporter. She was soo funny. Sayin stuff like 'their not racist'. He He
    You may be right, but dont dismiss the BNP to early. Fine we have very little/no power right now but you really need to look at our election results from 1997-2005.

    them italians did well out of slavery in roman times too. or is that too far in the past?
    Point conceded I take it. You asked what has Africa ever done for Britain and I've shown you in one incidence that it helped very nicely make Britain the richest nation in the world in the 19th century. This isnt the only advantage we got from having Africa in our empire and Africa has given more than the equivalent loans and aid we give it now to us.

    No one asked you to give all your money, just a little. Some is better than none which is what you seem to be suggesting you give at the moment.

    And you are happy for millions to die then needlessly simply because they were born in the wrong place? In which case you do make me sick.

    im trying to work out why you used the word illiterate.

    do you even know what it means?

    me full of apathy? bullshoit. im more than eager to try my best to get good qualifications and a good job to provide for myself and my family and to be a useful member of society here. thats what i care about.

    am i not human? i can assure you that i am.
    No. You seem closer to animality. Illiterate- ineducated, untaught.
    Only an ineducated person (or a selfish person) would be so ignorant as to turn the other cheek. It's horrible. It's everyone's concern.

    So you would get rid of hosptials then? Hospitals prevent people who are weak for dying, and hence prevent inferior genes from leaving the gene pool, slowing down evolution and by defintion going against the survival of the fittest.

    will you "spill your guts" out for the UK?

    if not, i know south african airways fly out of heathrow.
    No but I still care. I care about the UK. You are the one who is missing something. You do not care about Africa. Evil.

    i just think money would be better spent here, than in some random african country. i think you'll be able to see the logic.

    Err no, but nice try. People who are weak/dying in hospital don't tend to reproduce do they. They either die, or get better.

    And you accept that Africa has been one of the reasons the empire was so rich and that based on this empire Britain was able to be such a strong power in the 20th century. If so then I am pleased.

    on the contrary, i can read and write to a very decent standard.

    that'll be Uneducated.

    im not turning the other cheek. for the entire thread ive been saying we should be helping to improve our country.

    They get better due to medicine, dont know whether you've ever heard of this but its a chemical based solution to certain diseases and allows people who wouldnt normally survive to survive. They often bread also before they go into hospital allowing many genetically transfered diseases to surivive. Its good to know that you would kill all the people with sickle cell anemia or stop them for breading. So humane.

    a very complex question. you said earlier, i believe, that africa gave us much back as they are now currently receiving. is it a draw in your eyes?
