Lefty Lunacy: Black Country folk ‘tainted’ by their heritage


The Black Country’s proud industrial heritage should apparently be forgotten because of the region’s historical ‘association’ with slavery.

Matthew Stallard, a ‘historian of class and race’ at the University of Manchester, wrote for The Guardian (natch) that “there remains a general sense that Britons have not absorbed the full details of our imperial past or its continuing implications.”

The comments followed the PC brigade’s hostile reaction to a flag, designed by a local 12-year-old schoolgirl to represent the area’s industrial heritage, with the shape of a white glassmaking chimney and three linked chains.

We think it is high time the political and cultural elites started taking pride in our country’s often magnificent past.
