Weekend Essay: Lost in a Cloud of Leftist Virtue Signalling

Sunday, 12 May 2019 - 1:30pm

Nigel Biggar has offered comment on the Cambridge University decision to investigate its historical links to slavery in the 04 May 2019 weekend essay of The Times. Biggar argued, in part, 'Whatever wrongs happened in the distant past, the fog of history makes it impossible to determine who deserves compensation for the slave trade'. He concluded by encouraging Cambridge to heed the advice of former chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission Trevor Phillips, the research conclusions of philosopher (Baroness) Onora O'Neill, and the example set by All Souls College in Oxford.
