Judging by 'mess left behind' I would rank the UK as one of the worst offenders. India, Ireland, Kenya.. etc..

POLL DESCRIPTION

Gunfreak Supporting Member of TMP explains:

So I don't want it to get to negative. But we had a "best/least assholy" Colonial power.

So I thought we'd have the reverse. I do this mostly because of my lack of knowledge. I have a very loose grip on British, French and American colonial stuff.

But no knowledge on Belgian, Dutch, German, Spanish (besides the obvious conquest parts in the 16th Century) or Italian.

Like the "best" I think we should look at the whole? Both the conquest, "occupation," and then how the handled losing their colonies.

The only thing I can contribute to, and it's very superficial, is that generally the Belgian African colonies have had more problems then the British?
