Colonial mentality.

Sky News reporters are still living with the old colonial mentality. They only see Britain as the most sophisticated and civlised country on the globe, a conception which is far from true.

David Cameron had the same aura about him when he walked through Tahrir Square in Cairo during his five-hour visit. Needless to say the main purpose of his visit was to secure more arms sales and deals and not to spread democracy or human rights.

The ragged khaki combat trousers with a biege shirt and a hat similar to those worn by archaeologists has gone a long time ago with the fall of the British Empire. Get educated and better informed Sky News, as times are very different now.
