AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'I had never before considered whether an Aboriginal person could be an Anglophile. Then I came across one, a full-on black Anglophile. I thought being an Anglophile was a kind of paedophile to be honest, which would be an awkward thing to publicly admit so I looked it up later when they left in a cloud of earl grey and spotted dick: it means a person who greatly admires or favours England and all things English. I mean, sure I went through a phase of watching period dramas about rich British ladies yearning for the D, which was a bit of a sadistic habit, but this was a whole other level. ' (Introduction)
