Rwanda is to advise former British colonies that if they want the UK to actually pay financial reparations for the brutality of Empire, a sure fire way to get the cash is to claim you’ll host those seeking asylum in Britain.
One Rwandan official said 'It’s no use making the perfectly reasonable argument about how Britain directly profited from slavery. All you have to do is say that you’ll take away the nasty brown people and the Conservative government in London makes in rain. You’re quids in! Suckers. I almost felt bad about taking their money – and then I thought it through for a minute and I no longer felt bad.'
The official began openly giggling 'You don’t even have to take the people.'
