    for the turning point, i mentioned second world war and first world war, but not as a major point of my essay. i focussed first on how attiudes and the perception of the empire changed after suez, then i did how it affected britains world role and imperial strength then how it affected them economically. then i went back and basically said all my points were rubbish and highlighted the few actual changed. Its probably a weird method but thats how our teacher taught us, hope it works.
    for part b i found it difficult to remember everything about the empire, i would have prefered a focus on how econmics affected africa or india, but ah well. i talked about strategic and attitude/prestige as well as economics.

    You're so arrogant.

    You should shut up and wait till you get your grades before celebrating, like the rest of us 'normal' people really.

If somebody is happy let them celebrate is not abnormal! laxy- i hope your results are just as good as you think they should be.

    Those were the easiest questions I could've got, personally.

    I already pretty much knew that Suez would come up, and economics was peasy.
