Unlike yourself evershed, we look to the future not the past. This Philip fella is gone as is Herr Corbyn. The shame lies at the door of the Fashista, peddling their suitcase of shame. The little children have suffered enough, spare them the deceit you peddle. Phil Chard cannot save your blushes, you are defined by your failure to embrace a new vision of shining excellence. You look down on Pollock and Brady as reflections of your corruption, you need to wise up and hug the fella that sits to your left. Kiss him, love him and only then will you see God.

Great post SAG - Cantonaesq in its message and nature.
Iím afraid some folks on here spend their dayís looking back and pining for the old days:
The Empire
The ruling classes, posh folks knowing best
People knowing their place
England for the English
Get on your bike and sort it out (unless you want to come here)
Hatred of tolerance and empathy

Vive le revolution!!

We started watching Bridgerton after it was recommended to us by numerous friends. We made it just over halfway through the first episode before giving up, a) because it was utter shžte and b) because we found it really difficult with all the PoC playing members of the aristocracy.

Apparently it used "colour blind casting" and just cast the actor whose performance best fit the role, irrespective of colour. In a contemporary fictional production that's great and exactly as it should be.

In a period piece I find it both disingenuous and hugely dismissive of the struggles PoC have gone through in the intervening years. If people grow up now watching shows set centuries ago where non-white characters are shown in senior positions, afforded the same respect as the white characters then there's a risk they will take that as a representation of how things really were.

People talk about cancel culture in relation to the likes of Colston and Rhodes but I think this is very much the same thing and actually more harmful; if we portray a world where it's all been fine and dandy for PoC for centuries, then aren't we erasing from history the efforts of all those people who fought tooth and nail against racism and discrimination?

Another great post.
Iím changing my mind ... maybe we should keep HRH going forever on Cobblers Corner?

It is true that if you look far enough back in time every people has had its fair share of atrocities committed against it. The women and children following the Battle of Watling Street springs to mind in the case of Britain.

Just look at what the Romans did, all that slavery and gladiator rubbish. The UK needs reparations NOW from Italy.

To be fair, any reparations due should be offset for the Romans' introduction of sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health.

Yes, but apart from that, what did the Romans ever do for us? Smiley

The Labour Party did a lot of the same things and they never got any credit either! Sad

What you mean like Robert Powell as Jesus or Gal Gadot as Cleopatra?

You do know that New Testament Jesus was a mythical figure, right? Grin

The Labour Party was a party for good particularly Attlee and his reforms. The Corbynistos on here exemplified by a few above merely discredit a worthwhile party. Hope Starmer pulls it round! Disliked Ted Heath but like Boris ; itís his manner I can get on with!

Honestly, Evers, I've voted for many different parties over the years. I actually take the time to review policies, rather than nail my colours to any one ship. Boris got my vote last time - a decision made easy by the fact that Labour made themselves unelectable. I have to say though, as much as I don't align with Corbin's principles, at least he has some. Starmer is an insipid example of what Labour has become. A collective of ex-uni wannabes, with all the qualifications and not an ounce of backbone or common sense, and a complete lack of allingment with the man on the street. Party of the people? Not any more.

And they never happened In Spain, Belgium , France, Germany not to mention Serbia and Romania? In contrast with some of those Nations particularly France and Germany(Prussia) in comparison we generally did not adopt some of the worst policies common in Europe!

We don't need to go back to the dark ages for the most outrageously barbaric acts humankind is capable of (especially when inspired by ideology or religion) and surveys show many of the followers of those ideologies and religions are not exactly appalled.

Possibly, but only as stupid as some of the right wing, nationalist, empirical, royalist jingoism we get from
certain posters. Live and let live, embrace all cultures, races and nations instead of longing to rule them.
