AM I living in cloud cuckoo land? I thought the Con Dems were trying to clear the deficit. I read in today’s paper that they intend to spend £10 million pounds to celebrate key events in British history as we have so much to learn from our rich history.
Is this a joke? Do we intend to celebrate the empire’s exploitation and theft of natural resources, Thatcher’s destruction of the mining communities, or will we just be able to celebrate two world wars, the Falklands and Afghanistan, or will we just be celebrating carefully orchestrated bits of Conservative party propaganda.
Don’t people learn about history in school anymore? Also £250,000 has been wasted on the ongoing plebgate probe, surely it’s time to halt this waste of public finances.
