they believe the statue of David Livingstone statue in Glasgow should be removed because of his link to slavery?

I donít believe any historic statues should be removed. They are all part of my heritage and Iím proud to have a past. It was a different world then compared to now in many ways but we should not be going round destroying our history and memories just to satisfy modern day wokes.

The pyramids were built by slaves! We should also knock them down!

The Jews were slaves and had a rough time through history! Don't see them complaining all the time and playing the victim card! *Eye roll*

The pyramids were not built by slaves but there were certainly plenty of people enslaved in the ancient world

At the risk of my appearing ill informed - Did the workforce that built the pyramids turn up for work willingly ?

Wasnít David Livingstone an anti-slavery campaigner? One of the objections to him is that in his early life he worked in a cotton mill. A 10 years old working 12 hours a day to help support his family - what an example of privilege.

Just googled this - Modern day thinking is that farmers worked on the pyramids during the flooding season, with conscripted labour from surrounding villages -

I think we should put up more statues of illustrious people from the past.

According to most Egyptologists and based on the huge amount of written evidence , yes. A mixture of highly skilled artisans and labourers, paid works and also considered a form of public service to honour the living gods.

I was not there so this is based on what I have read or seen on documentaries etc

Exactly TE, the mere suggestion from the Glasgow council slavery audit that he should be cancelled for having a connection to slavery because the mill he worked in as a child may have used Jamaican cotton is beyond belief.

Good to see the taxpayers of Glasgow getting good value for money.

85 members elected (STV): 39 SNP; 31 Labour; 8 Conservative; 7 Scottish Green

This is what the future of Scotland would look like with an SNP government. Bunch of champagne marxists funded by the taxpayer
