I am pleased Oriel College, Oxford will be keeping the statue of Cecil Rhodes.
Britain should take pride in her imperial past. The British Empire was a much greater and more benign one than the Roman empire. (And Rhodesia was much happier before black rule than now under Mugabe and a new name.)
The empire's achievements include Australia, New Zealand, India, Singapore, the USA and Canada, the colony that stayed at home to look after mother.
