Two news items caught my eye and made me sigh this morning.
"The next Doctor Who should be black or female. "
A stained glass window in Bristol cathedral should be removed because it celebrates the life of a slave trader.
Recently too the statue of Cecil Rhodes was attacked in South Africa and students want it removed.
I understand that in our past History there are people who have done and said appalling things but the attempt to write them out of History is surely wrong. No doubt some of our present day decisions will be judged wrong in the future but they are our preference not theirs.
The politically correct brigade have always depressed me.
It's attempt to rewrite history is particularly worrying.
Of course things happened in the past that we now regret...but the fact that they did happen should remain as reminders and hopefully prevent the same things happening again!
I really don't care if Doctor Who is female or black or both...I just want the best person for the job to be appointed...
Can we get back to common sense sometime soon?
