Prime Minister Tony Blair has said he feels "deep sorrow" for Britain's role in the slave trade. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/politics/6185176.stm "We're talking about an apology of substance which would then be followed by various reparative measures including financial compensation." What right do you have to get cash for something that happened 7 generations before you were born I am getting really fed up with people holding out their hands for cash on whatever basis. This one is about something that happened 200 years ago FFS. It also conveniently forgets to mention Britains significant role in trying to stop the international slave trade.
