Woeful wokes


THE woke brigade are showing their stupidity once again. The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust announced it is changing its name to The Churchill Fellowship and removing images of the former prime minister from its website.

The charity, which awards grants for social and community causes, said many of Winston Churchill’s views on race are ‘widely seen as unacceptab­le today, a view that we share’.

Perhaps they should speak to those who have benefited from the trust and see if they believe Winston Churchill should not be held in high regard. I can’t imagine one of the wokes being so revered.
