Did you see Alice Roberts' programme on Plymouth last night? An absolute object lesson in how we assess our history. I expect there will be complaints from the Mail - in fact I think there have been over her description of John Hawkins as a slave trader. Which he was, no question, but hey, revisionism...
What was this on?

The only concept the Conservative’s have of charity is the blue rinse brigade selling a few cakes for the local private school, and the warm glow it gives them
And sending things they don't want to the dark children abroad so they can be grateful and love the mother country forever more.

A former Tory councillor who bought a country estate after being awarded £276m in government contracts for personal protective equipment (PPE) has added a holiday home and a house for his parents to his property portfolio.

Steve Dechan is the owner of Platform-14, which specialises in medical devices for people with chronic pain. The Gloucestershire firm recorded a loss of almost £500,000 last year.

And today:
A charity set up by the Daily Mail to buy protective equipment for NHS staff donated 100,000 face masks suspected of being made by workers in a controversial Chinese labour programme.

The masks were flown in from China by the paper's Mail Force campaign, which was launched in April to buy PPE.

They were bought from Medwell Medical Products, a firm suspected of using Uighur Muslims in the labour scheme.
