Britannia lit the match, but Britannia fears the flame
Britain causes burning and destruction around the world but they are afraid of terrorism in their own country. Lowkey has a song about this:
For example, Britain making borders in other countries have caused ethnic clashes and “lit the match” and now Britain is afraid of the “flame” that resulted (i.e. terrorism).
