GBNews: Woke Watch: Apology plaque for Sir Francis Drake statue – 18/08/2021


Colin Brazier and a look at woke stupidity – especially around virtue signalling especially re woke issues, they are getting very weird in Scotland

Today another monument, and this one of a figure deeply entwined with our island story. This sculpture is exercising council officials in Tavistock, Devon, where they’ve reviewed the future of a statue of Sir Francis Drake – following those Black Lives Matter protests. The council decided the famous British mariner, venerated for generations as the hero of our victory over the Spanish Armada, should have an explanatory plaque placed alongside his image. The plaque highlights his “horrific slave trading expeditions”. One letter of support was written in support of the plaque, with 89 locals writing to object.
