I don't think anyone would say the UK was a dictatorship, but it certainly did not grant the same rights to the people in their colonies as it did people at home.
Yeah... so long as you're British it's a great deal. Sucks if you're an Indian, Zulu or anyone else in their colonial empire.
And what about the American Empire, sucked to be a native American, a slave etc...

There are very few countries who can hold their head high when it comes to the mistreatment of another group.
