Text on the Burmese nationalist movement[edit]

This page is about British rule in Burma, and, I believe, it should focus on that; the text on the Burmese nationalist movement should go into the Nationalist movement in Burma page, which remains a stub. Fowler&fowler«Talk» 20:11, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Colonial India template[edit]

Colonial India
British Indian Empire
Imperial entities of India
Dutch India 1605–1825
Danish India 1620–1869
French India 1769–1954
Portuguese India
(1505–1961)
Casa da Índia 1434–1833
Portuguese East India Company 1628–1633
British India
(1612–1947)
East India Company 1612–1757
Company rule in India 1757–1858
British Raj 1858–1947
British rule in Burma 1824–1948
Princely states 1721–1949
Partition of India
1947

Since Burma was in British India until 1937, I have also added the Colonial India to the article (below the History of Myanmar template). If you don't like the template, or would like to move it up or down, or don't want it in the article at all, please let me know here. Regards, Fowler&fowler«Talk» 15:07, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Merge British Imperialism in Burma/Myanmar and British rule in Burma[edit]

I would say merge British Imperialism in Burma/Myanmar into British rule in Burma and highlight the issues of imperialism in that article. Gryffindor (talk) 15:35, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

As the only opinion was in agreement I have merged a large part of the content of the imperialism article into the British rule one. Please comment if you have any views on the changes or the text left behind.--Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 16:03, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

Bias[edit]

The article seems to give a very one-sided negative account of the ramifications of British rule. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.162.73.227 (talk) 13:05, 18 November 2011 (UTC)


I agree - and it contains a great number of biased assumptions. Not good enough wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 125.253.4.7 (talk) 00:55, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

Anglo Military Occupation and Burmese Authority GovernmentBritish rule in Burma – This controversial subject was moved today without any talk at all. It was then moved a second time and a robot fixed the double redirect so that I can't move it back. It should be done asap and the subject of moving talked about before taking such action again.
