Boris Backs Sweet Chariot: Biggest Problem is People Not Knowing the Words

In an interview with Sky News this afternoon, Boris has defended the rugby crowd favourite, Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, as it comes under pressure from the Black Lives Matter instigated cultural revolution, due to its origin as an American slave hymn. Nothing says ‘defending black culture’ better than erasing a song written by slaves…

Boris rejected the call, saying:

my only thought about this whole issue, frankly, is what people need to do is focus less on the symbols of discrimination – all these issues that people are now raising to do with statues and so on, I can see why they’re very emotive and I understand that – but what I want to focus on is the substance of the issue… we’re going to address all the issues we can in society.”

The PM went on to say his principal objection and question is “wanting to know what the rest of the words are… why don’t people seem to know the rest of it.” Sam Coates failed the PM’s test of whether he knew the song’s full lyrics…

Dutch PM Mark Rutte’s Motorcade

It is barely a year since Boris would unconvincingly excuse his lateness for lunch with some waffle about the difficulties of locking his bike up. Guido can recall stumbling out of a pub on Whitehall in the evening to almost collide with Boris on a bike. Nowadays when protestors aren’t throwing themselves in front of his motorcade he has for security reasons to jog round the garden inside Buckingham Palace for exercise. How Boris must wish for the freedoms still enjoyed by the Dutch PM Mark Rutte…

 CLASS ACT?

Can normality return without schools fully reopening?  Eight million families across the UK have school-age children.  But as long as schools are closed, many parents face difficulties in getting back to work.

There are concerns about the widening attainment gap and the psychological effects of keeping children isolated from teachers and friends.  And what’s the economic price of young people missing out on education that could increase their future productivity?

So, should the school gates re-open?  The IEA’s Academic and Research Director Syed Kamall, together with economist Julian Jessop and IEA Editorial and Research Fellow Len Shackleton, will explore all this and more in the DEFINITE ARTICLE – LIVE at 6pm.

JOIN IN THE DEBATE – LIVE at 6.00 pm – HERE or on YouTube.
