I thought it stood for Kaiping T V

Kaching TV (the sound of the cash register)...

Karaoke (Japanese) ... Though sing along technology was developed in the 60s it wasn't until the 70s that the Japanese really got the entire thing going with dedicated TV/Audio systems and so on.  

I'd like to murder the @#$ who invented it though, as there's so many wannabe singers who massacre songs.

How much can you expect 50 million people to do from a crowded island? But Brits can take the credit ...

Ted, remember also many the black and Asian immigrants in the UK were shipped in in the 1950s and 60s from the colonies, purposely to take up the dirty, low pay, and unsocialble working hours that the locals did not want to know, or be employed in.

It was a form of cheap labour import, for the good of the Empire.

How much can you expect 50 million people to do from a crowded island? But Brits can take the credit (and blame) for the USA - their creation. And the billions who use English as a convenient unifying language. They've done better than the Japanese.

The Brits can take the blame for losing to the Yanks who created the USA but can take credit for creating Canada.
You Canucks have done much better than the Yanks who can't seem to get along with anybody else on this planet.
Canada can take credit for creating the only country in the world where English and French peoples live together in peace. It's quite ironic that the Brits succeeded in conquering the world and spreading the English language except in Europe. They've done better than the French whose only colonial legacy today is a bunch of Third World States in Africa.

So it is OK for you to complain about others doing it but we should not complain when you do it?
