British Concentration Camps

When UK commentators say they cannot imagine the situation that led to the NAZI's final solution, concentration camps and gas chambers, perhaps they should remember the British concentration camps used in South Africa and Kenya.

In South Africa thousands died, black and white, adults and children interned in camps in appalling conditions - cramped, disease ridden, starved and lacking medicine. The British couldn't even be bothered to count the number of black Africans that died at their hands, even though the British were not at war with them. This was the Boer war.

While these camps existed around 1900, In Kenya thousands of Mau Mau were interned after the NAZI atrocities in the 1950s. Forced labour camps were described by the Solicitor General in 1953 as "distressingly reminiscent of conditions in Nazi Germany or Communist Russia" [source The Telegraph 30/11/12]
British soldiers clubbed Kenyans to death.

And Prime Minister Cameron, who can't get in own house in financial order, now wants to spend £50 million of hard earned British tax payers' money on a memorial to the Holocaust.

Wouldn't it be better to do this in the good years when Britain can afford it? And wouldn't it be better to have a memorial to the British concentration camps in Africa first?

If a household is in bad debt, with its members on zero hour contracts, minimum wage and unemployed, unable to pay for the spare bedroom, borrowing heavily from pay day lenders and eating from food banks, what does the head of the household do?

Go out and spend £500 on a piece of art for the living room?

Cameron has a different set of priorities to most British people. Is this why he is the Prime Minister?
