  1. Great point Ian. I mean you never hear an American say they are “English American” yet they’re absolutely proud to be “Irish American”, “Scottish American” or even “African American”. We’ve been apologising for colonisation for over 200 years and even formally to our indigenous population recently. OK, our ancestors behaved badly but that’s not us . .why should we carry historical guilt the way we do?
