"I'm from the British Empire and I'm here to help"

Typical Assrocket:

It's great to see someone standing up for colonialism, especially British colonialism. I agree wholeheartedly with this observation, for example:

Had Britain had the courage to face down Gandhi and his rabble a few years longer, the tragedy that was the partititon of India might have been avoided.
Estimated death tolls:
1876-1879 Indian Famine 6.1 - 10.3 M
1896-1900 Indian Famine 6.1 - 19.0 M
