David Starkey is an irrelevant dinosaur in 2011

We believe that the comments made by so-called 'historian' David Starkey on BBC Newsnight are evidence of a racist, backward-thinking, last century mindset that does not deserve a platform on national television. The future is global. The future is inclusive. The future recognises the deep complexity and intertwined-ness of our lives in 2011 and beyond. The future has no place for the dinosaur ideas of Mr David Starkey.
