Come inside my pretties, come and take the queen’s shilling. It’ll make a man of you boy! Glittering career serving your lords and betters, fighting for freedom and democracy. Don’t fear brave boys, the righteous light of god will be shining through to guide your sacred path.
But wait, is that political ambition I see? Is that colonial greed for mineral deposits in your unholy heathen land? Is that a naked desire to subjugate another sovereign state.?
No, can’t be that, you wouldn’t send the next generation off to slaughter for that………would you? To get blown to smithereens in a baking desert, to freeze to death on a frozen hill.
