    And from the Statue Front:

    Inhabitants of the capital of Greenland,Nuuk, are having a vote on whether to remove a statue of the priest, Hans Egede or not.

    Civilized natives there

    Some could learn from them

    Seems if they decide to re-locate Egede. They may also need to remove,busts,hotel names,squares, streets names etc. Oh Dear the floodgates are opening and the world is losing the plot.

    Good advice for you, would be, to make it an english campaign only.

    I'm afraid, that the rest of the world, won't see Danes learning you to wash up atleast once a week, as brutality

    I wonder if this Jen Reid is going to establish a series of orphanages and womens refuge centres using her own money, like Edward Colston did? If so, the statue can stand as far as I'm concerned.

    Well that's remarkably generous of you Boomer. Thanks for allowing that.

    But if you were going to be consistent then you should be defending it as 'history' irrespective of what was or wasn't done... Unless of course it was never actually about 'history' to begin with.

    True. There is literally no other way that future generations can learn about any of this, or anything at all, unless it's allowed to remain.

    Those who don't learn... etc. etc.

    ^ FACT!


    (It seems we have joined the right-wing, fascist, racist entitled, white-privileged fruitcakes. Did I throw in enough mirror-libby smack-words to satisfy?)

    I don't think she has made her fortune trafficking slaves, so probably not.

    Bloody impractical things. If only there were a way of recording history that took up less space.

    The Jen Reid 'statue' was removed a couple of hours ago.

    I guess the 'stay of execution' communique from Australia came too late.

    There are plenty in the UK and rest of Europe. Vienna has a particularly well known one.

    Who told you there weren't any?
