The British Empire began with the creation of overseas colonies in the 16th century and stretched right up to the latter half of the 20th century. At its peak in the early 1920s, it controlled 23% of the world’s surface and 458 million people. Its power and influence was hugely impressive, but what was the human cost of such a sprawling empire?

Seeing what the US has managed in its ambitions the British Empire was probably the most benign empire the world has & will ever see, sure some nasty things happened but look at what they did, railways, roads, water, education....in fact most of what they lost was down to educating the locals to university level, I think the video is a bit of an "armchair historian" SJW in hindsight
