Sorry to be a bore but I would like to revisit the shocking situation at King’s College, part of London University.
As I reported yesterday, on the death of Prince Philip Joleen Clarke, associate director of the university’s libraries , emailed a photo of him opening its Maugham Library along with the Queen in 2002.
In the email Clarke simply wrote; “As the nation marks the death of HRH Prince Philip we thought you would like to see this photo which some colleagues would remember.”
Then the wokies joined in saying they thought Philip had a history of racism (where is the evidence?) and this led to a kind of “kangaroo court” where Ms Clarke had to account for herself.
She then apologised for the “harm” Philip had caused.
Now two government ministers Brandon Lewis and James Cleverly have attacked what is clearly a disgraceful action by colleagues of Ms Clarke.

Lewis , an alumni of King’s College, described their actions as a “parody” while Cleverly said; “ This is getting silly.”
I think its more serious than that. The librarian acted in a very reasonable way. She didn’t even indicate, as the vast majority would have done, that we should commemorate the death of man who had given his entire to the service of this nation.
She simply pointed out that he along with the Queen had turned up at the library 19 years ago. Could it have been more innocent?

Instead of that she is hauled over the coals by other employees. What exactly is racist about the life and times of Prince Philip. He once referred to Chinese as having “slitty eyes.”
This was a minute mistake against 70 years of good work.
I would like to know the names and titles of the people who caused trouble over this issue. Then I would like to look into their families and backgrounds and see if they had ever made the slightest of errors.
And then I would like to publish them in my column. And I suspect you would too.
