As such she always looks out for opportunities to try to "rubbish" the past, with the intent of trying to make her "brave new world" look more acceptable.
Her chums in English Heritage have been recently doing their bit to expunge history, they are working on a project to highlight the links between landmark buildings and slavery.
Researchers will scour the history of stately homes and other sites looking for connections to the slave trade, which was banned in Britain 200 years ago next year.
FYI, Britain was the first country in the world to ban the slave trade. Oddly enough, it still continues in some parts of Africa and has experienced something of a modern renaissance in the spawning of the sex slave industry in Eastern Europe and the Far East.
However, we must never allow facts to get in the way of one of Nanny's "bright ideas".
One of the English Heritage's commissioners, Maria Adebowale, claimed that the project would help people recognise how much of Britain's historical wealth was built on "human misery".
Maybe so, but then again most other countries have had their wealth built on the slave trade as well, at some stage or another, viz:
- The USA needed a civil war to end it, indeed the civil rights movement was still fighting for decent treatment of black people in the 1960's
- Nazi Germany used slave workers in its factories during the last war
- Blood diamonds from Africa are mined by children and other unfortunates at the point of a gun
- Japan in the last war used sex slaves from China
- Ancient Greece used slaves
- Ancient Rome used Greek slaves etc etc
Will she fuck!
In fact, some of Nanny's ministers are considering whether to issue an apology to coincide with next year's abolition bicentenary.
Opponents of such moves claim historical apologies or compensation make no sense, and point to Britain's leading role in stamping out the slave trade as well as the part played by African tribes which profited from selling slaves to foreign traders.
Many of English Heritage's sites are stoneage monuments, medieval castles or abbeys; which raises the other question as to what the fark is the point of this futile exercise?
Next up, I guess the Italians will be apologising to Greeks for their slave trade?
