A leading scholar at the University of Oxford believes conservatives are afraid to stand up to the zealous left-wing minority who want to erase and rewrite history in case doing so prompts the mob to destroy their careers.
Nigel Biggar, regius professor of moral and pastoral theology, has criticised renewed demands, prompted by the Black Lives Matter movement, for statues and memorials to individuals who do not meet the standards of the 21st-century social justice left to be torn down, and for children to be taught a negatively slanted history of Britains imperial past.
The problem is that most academics know nothing about imperial history, Professor Biggar told The Telegraph.
What they do know is that its not fashionable to stand up for the British Empire and they also get the impression that if you dare to that, like me, you get mobbed, he said, referring to a 2017 attempt to cancel him for suggesting Britains morally mixed history could be a source of pride as well as shame, just like that of any nation-state.

And the guards at Auschwitz didnt wanna lose their police pensions.
He is correct.
That would be a crying shame. They should distribute the land, the endowment and any items of value as compensation for the ravages of imperialism and racism. Give it all to the poor in India and the former Rhodesia.
Time to call a company called, “Backbones are us”.
Screw the universities. Starve them
