Famous men (and women) and our fathers that begat us are never safe from censure as ideas evolve.
Back in the day (horrible expression) a scion of my college had his portrait re-titled ‘Haig the Butcher, 1 million dead’. The job was so professional that it was several weeks before it was spotted.
Now colonial torch-bearer Rhodes is the target; Oriel College has decided to disown his values.
‘And?’ you ask. Well, it’s a shame the facetwats can’t indulge their own prejudices without trying to rewrite history. Haig and Rhodes did important things, like them or not.
