Advantages: Christianity money technology Disadvantages: christianity the idea of slavery people who take advantage of the poor ( white people ) Yes, the British Empire had its faults. But it wasn't all tyrrany & opression, it wasn't the worst thing that has ever happened in history, not even for the populous that lived in places such as Kenya or Australia, say. And although I accept the British were not blameless in the instance of Slavery, neither were the British the worst of offenders, by & large. And certainly there was exploitation & not a little predjudice. As someone who lives in UK I do not think should apologise for my countrys past. As I say, there were faults, Amritsar being a glaring example, but I feel, & hope some will agree, that there have been worse things in history, and that the British have made a more than fair contribution to the way this world has become what it is today.
