Who do the English think they are?

Derek Taylor, historian and former international TV reporter

As you’d expect from a race 1600 years in the making, the English are a complex lot.  They value democracy, but took centuries to give everyone the vote. They’ve been tolerant, yet at times persecuted minorities. They’ve been eccentric and funny, but also conformist and straight-laced. They revere the rule of law, but put a military dictator’s statue outside parliament.  Bewildered? Derek will sort it out, and tell us who exactly the English are.

 Thursday 11th  April 2019  NOTE: this is the 2nd not the 3rd Thursday!
