The countries where the British ''meddled'' are usually the bright spots in their respective areas. Compare The Caymans and BVI to Haiti, Cuba and Republica Dominicana for instance.
Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand etc.
there's a difference between killing 99% of the natives and repopulate the areas with white british people. that's what britain did in most of your so called "bright spots".
sure, it turned out great for britain and the straight white male in general but too bad for the brown and black people who got conquered/killed/poisoned/enslaved.
i'd rather take my chances without the queen's help. thank you.
