India’s struggle for independence from a 200-year-old British empire is well recorded in the books of history, as are their cruel and vicious methods to suppress the revolution.

But, it seems like the British never learn. An English journalist named Quentin Letts recently compared the Brexit to India’s freedom struggle.

Maybe Mr. Letts could benefit from the NCERT history books we read as kids.
