First hand explanations given to me:
- “Everything now out in the open, no more excuses” — same source, also correct. His point was that Britain has always been a divided and hypocritical country, but now its exposed. He was sick of UK govt excuses, and know what, that might actually work (if they weren’t such a bunch of victim mentality blame shamers). (from a black, highly educated ex Londoner 40YO, bregrets)
- “We were an Empire once, and we can be again.” (From a 1st honours war studies graduate — bloody historians with rose tinted glasses).
- “Because we’re a nation!” — pro-nazi sympathising nationalist on twitter.
The rest you’ve captured, in varying degrees of inanity and chauvinism.
