I understand that you are a British, but lets not fool ourselves, today a lot of world's major Conflicts are directly and indirectly connected to the British Empire .That is a continent with diverse views. But I think you know the track record of Italians in WW2 and which side they took. That I think pretty well is instructive. Most of Eastern Europe that today love to hate Muslims also were first in line to rid of their of Jews and openly helped the Germans in filtering the Jews from their midst. Only Britain was as a whole the exception. And today also remains more "balanced" with the Muslims.
1- Balford Declaration , bringing European Jews to the Palestine and create a Chaos .
2- Left India before the designated time leaving Kashmir an unsolved conflict between 2 Nuclear Armed states .
3- Durand Line
4- Colonization of Middle east , South Asia , Africa and South America
British get lucky because of their Papa US, or else how the world treated Germany/Japan After the ww2 , British should have get the same Treatment .
