Reader’s Comment: Too white the hero


In response to Statues of Liberty: Jane Kelly nominates Louisa Gould and Harold Le Druillenec, siblings whose courage shone out in World War II, Paul Parameter wrote:

It would take exceptional blindness, stupidity and slavish adherence to political correctness to find a viable reason not to honour such individuals. But since it appears Louisa and Harold were British, white and patriotic, I dare say it would still be a job to get them past the self-appointed virtue-signalling regulators and censors of public acceptance that infest decision-making bodies these days, where such blindness, stupidity and political correctness are apparently crucial requirements.
However Louisa has already been recognised by the Beeb, so I guess that probably gets her over that hurdle. Harold might have a more difficult task, seeing that his memory carries the triple stains of his being ‘pale, male and stale’, the disgusting insult that is shockingly used as an excuse for disrespecting certain great men of the past.
