Last quote by Afua Hirsch

Britain has always had a warped sense of its own history, excluding ethnic minorities. Now a survey suggests this is becoming something more hostile and alarming. There is something deeply ironic about the wave of nostalgia sweeping political discourse in modern Britain. On one hand, it harks – increasingly since the Brexit vote – back to the age of empire. “A small island perched on the edge of the European continent became a leader of world trade,” is how international trade secretary Liam Fox fondly described that epoch to a group of Commonwealth trade ministers. On the other, the supposed humanitarianism that accompanied that age has been swiftly forgotten.feedback

The most recent quote attributed to Afua Hirsch came from an article called It’s right for Britain to reach out to Africa - wrong to send Boris Johnson: “The foreign secretary carries the baggage of his derogatory comments about black people. The continent deserves better – and so do we. Boris Johnson, our foreign secretary, is in Africa. On Wednesday he landed in Somalia to unveil a much-needed aid package. Yesterday he was in Uganda, in the state house, underlining Britain’s controversial support for President Yoweri Museveni, and in turn inviting him to a UK summit on Somalia in May. Next stop: Kenya.”.
