You're absolutely on the money there.

Selling England by the Pound. Or any other country. On that note, it's been a while since I listened to some old Genesis.

How long will Wilberforce stand in Hull


Will Wilber be forced to stand down? lOl Sorry l couldn’t resist. :oooops:

I watched, or rather endured some right on journalists today on current affairs progs. If they get their way in applying retrospective morality to all our historic figures, there is a danger of condemning people whose only crime was to be born and raised in a less enlightened place and time. :?

They are also having a go at our imperialist colonial past. Every successful nation state that developed the power went through it’s own period of exploration, colonisation then domination. We were just a bit better at doing it until WW2. Now they want us to get on our knees and grovel to the world for our past sins? What do they expect us to do? Pay reparations to all countries we colonised? Most of those countries are in a better state than we are. :roll: Sure bad mistakes and atrocities took place, but some countries were not even nation states prior to colonisation. Others benefitted and took much of their identity from our colonial past and wouldn’t want to change now. Who exactly in our society do they expect to take the rap for all these alleged crimes against humanity??? :?

Taken to it’s logical extremes there won’t be a statue or monument left standing in Old Blighty for fear of offending someone. Tourists might then choose to stop coming here, and many people from ethnic groups who came here to share our wealth, escape poverty or persecution and work in our heritage and hospitality industry will be out of work. :roll:

The statue of Lord Baden Powell in Poole Harbour is being guarded by locals who fear a woggle attack it.

Where next religion, the church ?
If coronavirus wasn’t manmade, it was nature, it was an act of God (an instance of uncontrollable natural forces in operation.) and it disproportionally affects people of colour, then is that not racist

I wonder how many of the protesters in London actually live or work in ‘the City’. Last time l was there most official figures l saw were black, and l was more than likely to be read the parking law by a traffic marshal of African or West Indian decent! This is not America. :roll:

I am concerned about the well being of people l meet regularly in London at work who l would like to call my friends, and particularly some from ethnic groups who may be at risk from the virus! :?

While we are at it, we should pull down every building; church, house, hospital, orphanage and care home that was built on the profits of slavery. Every bank account Trust or foundation for whatever cause set up by individuals or families who profited must be dissolved and the money put into a fund for oppressed black people and their descendants. Alternatively the money could go towards building a 1000 ft high statue of a black slave on a site at the very centre of England so that it can be seen for miles as a reminder of our past folly. It would be hypocritical not to! ;)

So we should redistribute our wealth among all descendants of Homo Erectus? I thought that our government did that already! lOl
