So who do we pay? Corrupt African leaders? How much do the French, Dutch, Belgium, Italians and Germans owe? All guilty of slavery, Hell why not go afters the Egyptians and Greeks,Aztecs, incas, Minoans et al for building ancient civilisations with slavery at it's core, infact all countries have used slavery at one stage or another, African countries included.

The fact that Britain has never allowed slaves in Britain doesn,t seem to mean much.

Reparations are never going to fly. Pure hyperbole. Designed to rile people up and keep the population divided. If they ever did seriously try and impose them then it's game over. Genuine anarchy is unleashed.

There is a LOT of money for politicians and activists of a certain bent in dangling this particular little carrot around but it is pure froth.

They want us f***ed off about it. Which is fine, it is bloody riling but never forget that what annoys them more is when we don't bite.

So just tell them to send the bill!

My family line is all Irish, do we get a slice of the action? A quite literal slice actually, food-based reparations seem apt at the very least surely? Perhaps a lifetime of free access to the noble British institution of JD Wetherspoons? I canít see any problems with allowing that for those of us from Irish lineage? Perhaps Rome could pay Britain back in Pizza and Pasta and that can be passed on to Irish descendants? I was born in Lewisham hospital and raised in the borough but the pain is still felt.

So many questions to be answered. Least of all is it acceptable to order dominos and get some cheap lager in at 22:10 on a Wednesday night?

 


Now Zaha's got a bit of green grass ahead of him here... and finds Ambrose... not a bad effort!!!!

Another UN report to bash the west over the head with.

Funny how they produce reports about historic events against the West whilst ignoring what happens in the world today and ignoring historic events in the Arab world.

 


One more point

That I should have to pay for the acts of those committed centuries before at a very different time is preposterous.

And when it comes to who pays you cannot separate state from its constituent citizens. We live in a multi racial community where those who would have to pay may be descended from those wholly unconnected with the nation at the time of slavery or from slaves.

Who do we pay? African Americans but only those of pure African heritage. Not those whose blood is mixed with the white slave masters. Good luck with that.

Perhaps African nations from where the slaves were extracted. Nice little earner for largely undeserving people not the descendents of slaves. And a simplistic black victim white devil assessment given the origin of many of those transported. They were usually not Kunta Kinte off hunting a lion, as romantic as that image is, they were prisoners of tribal wars freely traded by the forefathers of the very purported recipients of the cash.

And as others point out, why only Britain? The Spanish and Portuguese were knee deep and continued long after us. And why only slaves of the Atlantic slave trade? The Arabs carried on and still do it. And what of e.g. the Romans? Does the Italian government need to compensate pretty much all of Europe, North Africa, the Near and Middle East?

If this is grandstanding to keep alive the horrors of this genocide I have no issue. The Jews quite rightly ram home the holocaust at every opportunity and the evidence of prominent deniers and those who genuinely have no idea it happened justifies it. Why not the descendents of the enslaved. However if this is a genuine attempt to extort money from wealthy nations then they need to get real.

Itís clearly nonsensical from every angle. Itís a wonder to me that any lawyer responsible for such a report, especially one as eminent as this one, cannot see that.

You simply cannot heap the sins of the fathers on their sons. You hope that they learn, progress and are better people. Which is what we have actually done.

The economic impact of carrying out even a tiny part of the suggestions would be catastrophic and hurt everyone. Recipients included.

Much better to offer anyone who has a transported slave in their bloodline free passage back to their homeland, if that is their wish.

The UN should be abolished, it is a waste of time and money.

Anyone that's hoping that £18 trillion is going to get transferred into an overseas bank account is going to wait a long time -
Now if they made a sensible / claim for projects that would benefit the population, for example: An appropriate number of infrastructure projects - schools, hospitals, power stations, sewage treatment plants etc (with managers / staff to run them for say 10 years whilst they became integrated self sufficient) with a clear mandate that upon completion the debt is paid then they have a much better chance of getting something.
