Baroness Amos, the leader of the House of Lords, is to "express her regret" for the "evil of the slave trade" when she visits Africa (courtesy of The Daily Telegraph. Sorry no link). Why does every minister feel the necessity to apologise for something that occurred over 200 years ago. We had a major part in its abolition it happened it is in the past so get over it and do something more fcuking constructive like trying to sort out this country's fckunig mess thanks to this ba5tard useless Government. Even better why not apologise to the families of personnel killed in Iraq and Afghanistan and those serving for the crap wages, members of the emergency services for the 5hit they have to put up with, etc, etc.
