Rewriting history

Think colonialism's bad? Well, you thought wrong. At least, you did according to academic Bruce Gilley, whose recent paper in journal Third World Quarterly entitled "The Case For Colonialism" not only claims it was, "as a general rule, both objectively beneficial and subjectively legitimate" but also argues that we should create "new Western colonies from scratch".

I'm not entirely sure what my old employers were thinking in accepting the article for publication. Presumably a paper by David Irving entitled "The Nazis: Just A Nice Bunch Of Lads" is next.
