After a rebellion part of it gained a sort of independence. Meanwhile in Northern Ireland the last refuge of the colonists who believe themselves 'under siege' surrounded by the 'mere natives'.
The English did that.
Meanwhile in rest of the empire Britain exploited the differences the tribalism and religious differences. If you want one example look at Pakistan and India. That's the legacy of the empire.

The English were not the positive influence in the world they like to believe.

The remarkable ignorance shown here really puts some perspective on the motivation for Brexit. A fantasy borne out of false history and lies.
I do know my history my friend, I am well aware of the shortcomings of the past against current social mores. I feel no guilt over this nation's actions in the past. Indeed if the British should have to feel that guilt it should be centuries before Germany should be allowed re-entry to the human race.

I guess you're from the island of Ireland? Looked at your own family history? Were they all honest, decent people? Any Scottish or English blood perhaps?

Try to be honest with yourself.
