OF COURSE black lives matter, but I wouldn’t go down on one knee to support the campaign so Dominic Raab, Foreign Secretary, do not apologise for your view. The Black Lives Matter movement should join together with the protection for the unborn child movement - now those children really get a bad deal. I would then certainly get down on one knee to support both aims.

All lives matter.

As for statues being removed because some would like to change history, perhaps there should be a referendum for each one that there are demands for it to be removed. The referendum would be paid for by the instigators – if they win they get their money back.
