Apologise? What for?


There's a lot of sanctimonious drivel talked about the slave trade and its so-called abolition (see Abolition? What abolition?, p11). And none more sanctimonious nor drivelling than London Mayor Livingstone, "apologising" for London's alleged role.

But it wasn't London, it was the ruling class. And they started with London street children, then rebels, then the Irish, and when they had run out of them looked to Africa. Now open borders are allowing modern-day slavery in domestic service and prostitution in London.

London's workers have nothing to apologise for. Livingstone should apologise to them.
