It has Happened!!

Post by Nigel H-J »

You cannot change historical facts and I think, whether you agree or disagree with me this is a move too far. I am not against people of ethnic minorities or colour or creed but I fear it is going too far when removing a dogs' name for the sake of being politically correct!! :((

I totally agree Nigel. This country should wake up. We are slowly slipping into the abyss and I feel very worried for my grandchildren's future.

Also the sports supporting a political movement is totally wrong.
I'm OK with diversity and equal opportunities. But they are supporting the wrong movement.
I will be cancelling my Sky contract if they don't stop soon!!

Rant over

You cant learn from history if you obliterate it.

[Edit] Having read Skippy’s post below, I think they’ve done the right thing. I wouldn’t want the girls being put off from doing something because their employer had something that was derogatory towards women in the office. Regardless of its history. As long as the history is still there for them to learn from, and, hopefully drive them to change the future.

Those who refuse to learn the lessons of history are destined to relive them!
