Absolutely not, no former Empire owes reparations. It is utter nonsense, when does British culpability end? Is it only at the point of negation?

If only at negation, why stop at the British? What about the Chinese, Mongolian, Turkish, Russian, Hittite, Assyrian, Egyptian, French, Hungarian, Roman, Spanish, atrocities met by Indians upon Indians, Africans on Africans, etc etc through the whole of human history. Where does the madness stop exactly?

I know we may not have had the best past but we can't really be expected to pay for something our ancestors did. It's like if someone's great great great great grandfather and they expect the great great great great grandson of the thief to pay them back.
