Tagh Hickey’s video on the British view of their empire
An Irish comedian has gone viral for his satire on the modern British view of their imperial and colonial past.
The video titled ‘The British Empire, but it’s a school reunion in Cork’ shows the comedian Tagh Hickey imagine a school reunion but instead of embarrassing memories from high school, it’s a reminder that Great Britain was indeed a “bully”.
“How have you been?” India asked Ireland, “For what we went through, pretty good.” they respond.
“Wazzup ladies?” A scruffy-looking depiction of Britain appears, interrupting them, and telling them they look good, desperate to celebrate the “good old days”
“You were a bit of a loser when you were hanging around with me,” Britain tells Ireland, who went independence in 1921.
