I was asked by The Voice for my thoughts on the increasing momentum for the reparations movement.
I told them:
There is a change taking place at the moment in the terms of the fact that this has come on the political agenda partly through the work of Laura Trevelyan and her family. Partly now, because the King has also made comments and apologies, which is a critical part of the whole kind of reparations campaign.
Now, do I think that’s going to result in Rishi Sunak paying tens of millions…of pounds to the Caribbean? No, but we have to remember, there’s likely to be a general election and a possible change of government.”
There’s nothing wrong with people being aware of the world around them and aware of history as it actually is, as opposed to the stories that some people in countries tell themselves.
