In this interview Antonius speaks also to the impacts of British colonialism on the national development of Egypt over past centuries, focusing on the efforts by British colonial administrators to undermine the development of national industries such as cotton. Also this interview presents analysis on the importance of understanding the key role of the monarchy in sustaining the British commonwealth concept.
