Students have defaced a mural featuring Rudyard Kipling's If in a stand against his "racist" work.

The author's 1895 poem was painted on a wall of Manchester University's newly renovated union building.

But student leaders erased the work, replacing it with a piece by Maya Angelou in a bid to reverse "black and brown voices" being written out of history.

The union has apologised for failing to consult students on its choice of poem.

Read some of the comments  ;D

They aren't there to deface anything they are there to study, aren't they?

I worked at the university for a number of years before this generation of snowflakes could write , at our induction we were told to remember that all students are large school kids

May I ask why you dislike left wing people and use it as a slanderous remark?


I've read a few comments that makes me wonder why you have this stand?

By and large I find that lefties are treasonous anti British riff raff, e.g. Corbyn, Abbott, Thornberry, McDonnell et al and their SWP footsoldiers that are now fully in control of the Liebour party, the people that defaced the poem are emboldened by the fact that these commies are in positions of influence and it's only gonna get worse imo.
   Hope that clears it up a little  :)

Socialist Workers Party, a nasty little group of Marxist thugs that are similar to the BNP in their tactics, but any time there's a demo they're there handing out placards and generally agitating, I always find it odd that nobody ever questions their presence at "moderate" demonstrations.

I know she was, I think she fancied herself as a British Jane Fonda, I remember her brother Corin stood as a candidate for the Revolutionary Communist Party back in the 70's, must run in the family.

A very noble group in my opinion lots of good people a credit to britains working class.

Workers Against Racism (ELWAR), before it was launched as a national campaign, Workers Against Racism campaigned against state racism.


Protests were organised against deportations, and passport checks at hospitals and unemployment benefit offices.

ELWAR also organised patrols and vigils to defend immigrants against racist attacks.


In Parliament, Tory MP nicholas Winterton demanded of the Home Secretary:


'if he will seek to proscribe the East London Workers against Racism vigilante group[/font][/size] Workers Against Racism was criticised in the press for its activities during the 1981 Brixton Riots
