A long piece telling us how awful the East India Company was. In which we get this:
India was finally coming back into its own, they said, “after 800 years of slavery”. The Mughals, the EIC and the Raj had all receded into memory and Allahabad was now going to be part of India’s resurrection.
Hmm, what’s that? You mean the EIC stole it all from the Mughals who were also conquering looters?
My word, don’t we think we should make a little more of this? Or is only whitey to blame?
