Georgian Architecture is Offensive!

Nanny is plumbing new depths in her stupidity.

Step forward Sadiq Khan’s Housing Design Advocate Dinah Bornat, who apparently spent her Sunday morning complaining that Georgian style architecture is starting to look “offensive” because it “harks back to oppression” and “colonialism“. 

Responding to a picture of a charming new Georgian style house Bornat slammed the style in a series of bizarre tweets. Guido has compiled a selection:

“The fortress style/display of wealth resonates through time. I wonder is it starting to resonate just a little too much for a lot of us? Imperialism starting to look, well, offensive? Just a thought.”

“I’m talking about offence caused by colonialism. Which arguably goes beyond offence.”

“I’m concerned that this replica approach learns nothing and stifles cultural debate. Going so far as to define it as ‘beauty’ is politically troubling. If beauty harks back to oppression we are on very dangerous ground.”

When asked “The oppression of the Romans? I can’t tell if you’re joking“, Bornat replied:

“I was actually talking about the Georgians and colonialism. But their style harks back to the Romans of course.” is brought to you by "The Living Brand"
