Default Welsh government report says Churchill, Nelson and Gandhi were ‘complicit’ in slavery and colonialism

Welsh government report says Churchill, Nelson and Gandhi were ‘complicit’ in slavery and colonialism

November 27, 2020

The statues and street names of Winston Churchill, Lord Nelson and Mahatma Gandhi in Wales are likely to be removed as they were named in a Welsh government report reviewing those ‘complicit’ in slavery and colonialism.

In the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests, an audit was launched to assess the historical figures for ‘culpability’ in the slave trade, imperialism, and racial bigotry.

The report, published on Thursday(26) ‘questions’ the reputations of the wartime prime minister Churchill and Trafalgar hero Nelson. It names Churchill’s 17 commemorations and Nelson’s 31 as a potential cause for concern.

Well in Churchill's case this is long overdue but sadly it's for the wrong reason as in 1911 Churchill sent armed troops into Wales whereupon they read the Riot Act and proceeded to violently quell the uprising of Welsh workers who were trying to remove the greedy Jews who were pouring into Wales from Eastern Europe.

Also they seem to have overlooked the fact that 'racist' Welsh Baptist PM David Lloyd George once demanded that Britain retained the right to "bomb its niggers"....perhaps someone could warn this committee as to their oversight.
