‘A reckoning with our past must shape our future.
‘This has profound contemporary relevance in terms of our international obligations; not just of specific instances of restorative justice, but in recognition that Britain’s prosperity is built off the backs of communities with far slimmer economic means. Our international aid programmes and refugee commitments are not a matter of benevolent charity to be dispensed with when politicians are feeling miserly: they are what we owe the rest of the world.’- Observer editorial, 2 April 2023
‘When colonial slavery was abolished in 1833 the British government paid £20 million to slave-owners as compensation for the loss of their "property". In today's terms that figure equates to around £16.5 billion. The enslaved received nothing.’

'Slavery is a central and indisputable fact of the nation’s past. But our failure to remember what really happened is more than mere forgetfulness.'
‘Nearly two centuries after slavery was abolished, this country has still not fully acknowledged the shameful part it played. We must delay no longer.’
‘Today’s generation is not responsible for what happened two centuries ago – but it can be guilty of refusing to learn from it.’
