It patronises the public that they can't at once see the great in Churchill as a War leader but recognise the bad as the electorate did in 1945. Brits of Indian origin who understand our colonial history can't be told to revise his bad role in it Why the huge tension in the truth
@johnmcdonnellMP was asked a straight "hero/villan" question, chose to mention a negative aspect of Winston Churchill. I'm of Indian origin & anyone who understands colonial history knows that there are others. He clearly did great things but we shouldn't censor our history.
I'm the Rapporteur for the Visa Free Waiver - the story surely is that the UK will now get visa free travel across the EU in the event of no deal. Would the usual British journalists bother to report it if it didn't have an anti-EU angle. Tiresome. theguardian.com/world/2019/feb…
The story should have been about visa free travel and no deal. People of Gibraltar knew that if there was Brexit they would be subject to uncertainty & instability on a regular basis. Why they almost to a person rejected it. British journalists reporting this as if it's big news
