Common Sense !!


That is exactly the right attitude and well done the government for pointing out the museums responsibilities regarding Britain’s, history and heritage.

 “As publicly funded bodies, you should not be taking actions motivated by activism or politics.

Oliver Dowden

So said Cultural Secretary Oliver Dowden in a letter to Britain’s museums following the BLM protests and subsequent vandalism and destruction of statues.

Erasing our history does not make things right, nor better. The museums job is to help people to understand.

The government also stated that “rather than erasing these objects, we should seek to contextualise or reinterpret them in a way that enables the public to learn about them in their entirety, however challenging this may be”.

We cannot apologise for the actions of our ancesters, nor should we.
