Well no, they wouldn't have anything to say about that. They're dead. Assuming you're referring to compensation, why should modern-day Africans gain financially from the suffering of their 200-year-old ancestors? Because the suffering went on until a lot more recently than 200 years ago. You could ...
On a more sincere note: given how much Britain has taken from, for example, African nations, should we not try and make things right by helping them out? What did we take from African nations exactly? Did..did you miss the few hundred years of history when the British were annexing bits of territor...

This is, I believe, looking up Swanston St. towards the building shortly after it opened in the middle of the Grea...
Or if you fancy it, youth hostel? I've stayed in some remarkably lovely ones in the past. I know, I know... Rowan in a youth hostel?!
