As promised earlier today, here's another recent article of mine. The background to this is simple. I got very cross last year with various statue-topplers and curriculum-decolonisers getting around the place in the wake of Black Lives Matter and so on, and I sent the lot of them up as high as a kite in several places, including the Spectator. What I neglected to do, however, was model how one actually engages with a morally mixed past. So, in December, I decided to write a piece doing just that, on the Roman law of slavery (I am qualified in both classics and Roman law). The past is a foreign country, they do things differently there.

Righto, back to writing about Brexit. I'll share another piece of mine published in the last 12 months on my return this evening. Until then, have a Chilli, my "green steel" cat.
