Global Justic Now: Brexit trade delusions show why Britain needs to confront its history of empire

Absolutely loved (loved loved) writing this piece for Global Justice Now, as it enabled me to talk about one of my passions Empire and the consequences of the ignorance around the realities of Britain’s Empire on Britain today. This particular piece explored Empire in relation to Brexit and the coded way in which Brexiteers allude to Britain to returning to the glory days of Empire when the reality is Britain’s colonial project was built on violent conquest, racist ideologies and the ruthless exploitation of black and brown bodies (and the resources of their lands).
