Re: Is the renaming of streets 'erasing history'?

My uni course between 78-80, the history of the Atlantic, presented an accurate picture. Britain was built on the back of slavery in the 18th Century and pressed for its international abolition in the 19th Century for economic reasons. And, yet, you had no idea of the origins of Colston Hall? That'...

Re: Is the renaming of streets 'erasing history'?

Street names , statues , place names are all historical memoirs . They are however looked after by the present. Should the democratic will be they are changed , they must be changed. There is however a world of difference between a slave trader in the 17 and 18 century and being a peadophile in the...

Is the renaming of streets 'erasing history'?

Savile's View in Scarborough was named after...you guessed it.

The council renamed it. Have they erased history?

Re: Rega Planar 8 and Hana SL

I think the 'skeleton' designs are a definite step up. I liked a lot about the 10 when I heard it, and I know a couple of people who are very happy with their 8s.

Idlers are my gig but I get why the 8 and 10 sell.
