Gradonačelnik Khan formira povjerenstvo za pregled svih londonskih znamenitosti kako bi osigurao da poštuju ‘različitost’

Summit News

Londonski gradonačelnik Sadiq Khan suočio se s kritikama u utorak nakon što je najavio formiranje povjerenstva kojem će biti cilj pregled svih londonskih znamenitosti i imena ulica te obećao da će ukloniti sve koje nisu u skladu s “različitosti”.

Khan je obećao “pregledati i poboljšati” Londonsku različitost u jeku BLM “prosvjeda” na kojima su oskvrnjeni kipovi Abrahama Lincolna i Winstona Churchilla.

Today we’ve unveiled a new commission to review and improve the diversity of London’s public landmarks.

We must commemorate the achievements and diversity of all in our city – and that includes questioning which legacies are being celebrated. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-52977088 

Workmen taking down Robert Milligan statue

London slavery statue removed from outside museum

The Canal and River Trust says the Robert Milligan statue’s removal “recognises community wishes” .

Khan je za Sky News rekao da će “Povjerenstvo za različitost u javnom području” pregledati sve znamenitosti Londona, uključujući murale, uličnu umjetnost, nazive ulica i druga javna obilježja.

“Kad pogledate javno područje — nazive ulica, trgova, murale — ne samo da postoje neki robovlasnika za koje smatram da treba ukloniti, a komisija će nas savjetovati o tome, već zapravo nemamo dovoljnu zastupljenost ljudi od boje, crnih ljudi, žena, onih iz LGBT zajednice”, rekao je Khan.

“Moramo osigurati da slavimo dostignuća i različitost svih u našem gradu i da odamo počast onima koji su London učinili onim što jest — što uključuje i ispitivanje onih ostavština koje se slavi”, nastavio je.

“Prosvjed Black Lives Matter s pravom je na to skrenuo pozornost javnosti, ali važno je da poduzmemo prave korake kako bismo zajedno radili na promjenama i osigurali da svi možemo biti ponosni na svoj javni krajolik”, proglasio je Khan.

Neki su istaknuli da se ono što predstavlja “različitost” i ono što je neprihvatljivo za Khanovo povjerenstvo vjerojatno neće uskladiti s javnim mišljenjem.

Protect our heritage. No Cultural Revolution. ISIS destroy history.

And I object to a 1000 capacity Mega-Mosque in Picadilly Circus.

It would destroy Leicester Sq on a Friday.

New commemorative statuary, fine, but leave our heritage alone.

I’d like to knock down the Roman part of London Wall that is still visible because they used slaves

Tower of London will have to go

Barnard Castle@whatttheff

Not sure the French are to happy about Trafalgar Square and Nelsons column, there are thousands of them in London now. Do we care, NO, stop wasting London’s budget.

Edward Howard #RhodesMustStay@EdwardHoward11

Presumably statues of Stormzy shall go up.

Cnut @CnutForkbeard

I’d like to apply to be on this commission. Please direct me to the application form and criteria. Thank you

One assumes that same legacy (buildings/churches/schools built with the “wrong” philanthropists funding) will also be demolished and removed?
Ian@numb15

Can you include Cromwell’s statue too. An affront to Irish people having to walk near it, he effectively enslaved Irish people.

Diversity shouldn’t be about removing British history in Britain. Where’s the endpoint? If we remove everything we don’t like about our history, do we next dismantle our castles because the Monarchy historically brutalised the people?

Krampus@p_j_d_247

Just as well you are not the mayor of Rome.

Joe@FrederickBolly

excellent. let’s put Marx, mandella and michael Jackson on the table too.

The giant Buddhas at Bamiyam also displeased their new overlords. The barbarians are at the gates.

Ahhhhh it begins. The eradication of British history.

You are purposely trying to remove British culture and history…

And after the statutes, then the books and then those horrible white people will need to be deported back to where they came from?

Alice@JustaskingAlice

Knife crime is on the increase and you worry about statues.

Jane Staying Alert@JaneGerson

How about action to prevent more of this happening?https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-52963555?intlink_from_url=https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/localnews/2638043-Shepherds%20Bush/0&link_location=live-reporting-story

Man killed in west London shooting

The victim, believed to be in his 20s, was found with gunshot injuries in Shepherd’s Bush.

Nice to see he’s got his priorities right. We are facing mass unemployment, every part of society and all services damaged, much of it permanently. And Sadiq sets up a commission on statues.

Alex JS@AlextheJS

Knife Crime – Nah
Gun Crime – Nah
Gang Crime – Nah
Violent Riots – Nah
Violence against innocent Police Officers – Nah
Purge British History and Culture – Yes!

Or we could just spend the money on something which actually helps minority groups?

Ovo je možda jedino pravo rješenje:

Crypto Bond@cryptojb007

I propose all statues in London are taken down and replaced by Sadiq Khan statues
