‘Britain: no longer the land of the future’ | G. Hassan- openDemocracy

The UK seems now to be in permanent celebration and marking of battles and wars: whether it be the Battle of Trafalgar of 1805, the Battle of Britain of 1940, or the more recent anniversary last year of Montgomery’s defeat of Rommel at El Alamein in 1942. And next year there will be the big ones: the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War, the 75th of the beginning of the Second World War, and the 70th of the D-Day Normandy landings. Lest we forget and how could we, there is also the 700th anniversary of Bannockburn and Robert Bruce’s famous defeat of Edward II.
