I thought they'd just about beaten all semblance of life out of this one. But it seems not.
The article strongly alludes to the fact that British students don't want to study abroad because they hate, well, all of abroad. And this is because of colonial mastery, apparently.
A "colonial mastery", which as we know from the constant guilt trips, didn't involve going abroad at all. It was all done from the comfort of the classic leather sofa neatly juxtaposed to a 50-inch widescreen telly spewing out propaganda like this. In Dagenham.
Therefore, if you don't want to travel the globe or leave your family behind, spending—and more importantly, borrowing—lots of money to do so, I'm afraid you're a racist.
Leon Trotsky lies laughing in his grave. If it wasn't overseas and I wasn't such a xenophobe, I'd gob on it.
