Nice article - but was the Empire fading in the G&S period? Surely it was at its zenith. DavidSullivan 10:52, 17 January 2008 (EST)

  • I agree. Conservapedia's article on the British Empire says "its voluntary demise may be variously dated to 1947 (when India was granted independence), to the 1960s (when the UK withdrew from most of its remaining colonies), or to as recently as 1997 (when Hong Kong, the last major colony, was returned to Chinese rule)." I personally thought its decline was thought to have begun at the time of the First World War. Dpbsmith 20:15, 17 January 2008 (EST)
