"South Africa, where the British invented the Concentration camps and murdered 40 000 innocent women and children"

Couple of points there Guest Al

1. The British did not "invent" concentration camps in South Africa during the Boer War. If anyone gets the "prize" for that dubious distinction it would the Spanish in Cuba, followed closely by the Americans in the Philipines. In both those cases the numbers who died in their camps amounted to 200,000 to 250,000.

2. 40,000 innocent women and children did not die in the British Camps the number was about 26,000 - Roughly the same as the number of British and Empire troops who died at the same time in their camps of exactly the same diseases.

As for - "ask INDIA where you murdered 29 Million innocent people."

Where on earth do you dig this crap up from?

Now take your methadone and go and lie down for a while, don't forget to lock the door of the Portacabin after you've turned off the computer. By the bye how much longer have you got on "the programme".
