    I always thought it was a badly spelled contraction of "Vectra Man".

    Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!

      You open yourself up to insults because of the dribble you post. You make yourself an easy target to ridicule.

            "A museum devoted to Jane Austen has sparked fury " In a Daily Telegraphs journalist's hypothetical target audience, and then reported by the Daily Mail.

            What's really happened is that the Jane Austen museum has decided to educate concerning slavery during the 17/18th century and this is being use to sell more DT and DM papers.

              And what the heck does slavery have to do with a Jane Austin museum?

              It's like a cake shop suddenly deciding to start selling solar panels, because, well just because they're trendy and the owner wants to look virtuous and woke!

                  Ah OK, the keyword is "education" So you were right, it's not at all like a cake shop starting to branch out into solar panels.

                  I get it now - It's like an electrician's training course instructor suddenly deciding to include renaissance painting on the syllabus

                    You mean Miss Austen consumed a perfectly legal substance - sugar something that had been imported since 1069 when the Africans were only selling their brothers to the Arabs. It was refined in Venice and Columbus not Drake took sugar cane to grow in the Caribbean. The Europeans hadn't even got to Africa - we arrived in the late 1400s.

                    Its odd how the only people who are required to have any shame about the slave trade are Europeans. >90% of slaves in the new world were sold by their fellow Africans. The Arabs were buying slaves from African kings in the 700s they continued buying them into the 1800s in similar volumes to the Europeans - to the point the price of slaves doubled because of a shortage of people for the African kings to sell. The British finally stopped this age old trade and we are supposed to be the only one to apologise?

                    Before everyone exploited Africa for slaves they worked their way around the world. Ask Moses, Spartacus etc.

                    I'm all for slavery being bad but not for only the western nations to pay for it. We all should take responsibility.

                      Pretty much, yes. Nothing to get upset about really.
