comment How to get a British passport stamp?
I am a British subject and travel on a Canadian passport. They stamp it, of course. Your first sentence should say "British passport" not "citizen's passport" since my Canadian passport is a citizen's passport. Also the UK doesn't require you to travel on a British passport. I know some countries do, but they don't. (Also I expect the stamp is not for proof of anything but as a souvenir or keepsake.)

comment If a hotel staff asks me for buffet food, can there be consequences if I bring him food?
I think it might also help if you could clarify whether this is more about "someone asked me for a tip, and I felt it would be awkward interacting with them later if I didn't" or "someone with a sad story asked me to break the rules for them, and I wanted to, but was worried about consequences." In other words had the towel boy asked for money to buy breakfast, would this be different?

comment Why is the British passport the most valuable despite colonization?
Why "despite" colonization? Seems likely to me that part of the independence process would include better treatment for the former empire than for random strangers. As well, these visa-free things are often reciprocal, and people from former British colonies are likely to want to go to Britain.
