British Reparations.org - The International Coalition for British Reparations

Some joker has written a book blaming all the world's ills on the British Empire, and a promotional site 'campaigning' for reparations for the rest of the world.

Looks like some kind of viral marketing spoof type thing. The website is registered by these johnnies.

Yes - it's to promote the book. The guy was on the Today programme yesterday. Iraq - our fault, as Churchill drew up dodgy Iraq borders; state of Africa - mostly our fault for similar reasons; global warming - our fault for starting the industrial revolution; SUVs - our fault for inventing the Range Rover, etc. etc.

it's definitely got to be a hook for something else i think.

No, not very good. Manages to be slightly distasteful, while not in the least bit funny. Looks like the kind of thing that some irritating sixth formers would come up with.
