You could argue with some degree of credibility that British colonialism has made it somewhat easy to teach geography not just to humans but also to aliens, if they were ever keen on learning from us.

I state this because it is so much easier pointing to the countries on the map of the globe, that Britain chose not to invade, rather than the ones which it actually invaded.

And there’s only 22 countries which escaped the grasp of the British.

So why have I made this point?


This country, which is located on the tip of South America, is one which barely features on the consciousness of the vast majority of Brits alive today. But it is one which has been crucially important to the mother country for centuries.

The term ‘demerara sugar’ comes from an actual place in Guyana, where the slaves stolen from Africa toiled for free and generated product, which made billions for Britain.

And when slavery was outlawed across the western hemisphere, the United Kingdom took the extraordinary step of importing labour from India and China to do the jobs which Africans could no longer be forced to do.
