    You're genuinely just doubling down on the stuff that makes people not like Labour. Drop the statue fetish, it's street furniture.

    That's not even close to an accurate estimate, and you know it. It might be accurate for a brief, randomly-defined period of history, and solely for those Western European nations subjected to the practice, but for the entirety of enslaved peoples in North Africa? You'd need to add countless millions more. Russia in particular was a major source of slaves in the Arab world. Also, where did you pull the '400 years' figure from? The slave trade in North Africa operated on an 'industrial' scale for over a thousand years.

    So to summarise, the estimate and period I mention may be right but you're unhappy I didn't count the last millennium.

    OK we will just add 1m more Whiteys and an extra 100 years to the Arab crimes so we can be sure they are included.

    26 million to 2 million now

    Clearly you're no good with numbers, but any chance you could tell us how many chromosomes you have?

    @Toby - You're part of the problem!

    Middle class drug users share the blame for the deaths of black children “pimped” out by crime bosses on Britain’s streets, David Lammy says.

    “It’s got to the stage in a constituency like mine where it’s not even really making the news”, he told i. “So black children are dying – they can be 14,15, 16 – and it’s no longer considered special or exceptional, or something that we should pause on and reflect on.”

    Affluent drug users are part of the problem making the UK the “cocaine capital of Europe”, he says.

    Frosty writing in The a Wail begging the EU not to be beastly to us over NI. Apparently Tubs, in his haste to ' Get Brexit Done" didn't read the small print surreptitiously slipped in by Johnny Foreigner to trip us up. Funny thing that, you would have ( of for Brexitards) thought that with all those fine legal minds they might have spotted it.

    It was mostly peaceful. I was in the West End on Saturday, happened to see a few Palestinian sympathisers peacefully protesting. Didn’t see any trouble, wasn’t terrorised by Hamas.

    You, of course, will see only what you want to see, and as you are clearly blinded by hate, what you see won’t be pretty.

    You didn't see it, so choose to ignore the examples posted on that link.

    I passed no comment other than the one about 'mainly peaceful' which is also your claim, so you must be blinded by hate too, or perhaps you're just deluded and in denial. :emoticon-0105-wink:
