As Historic England calls for a debate on knocking down Nelson's Column, DOMINIC SANDBROOK says the way such bodies constantly give in to the far Left is beneath contempt
We went on a family outing to London a few weeks ago to see the sights. Among our stops was, inevitably, Trafalgar Square, where the children peered up at the figure of Horatio, Lord Nelson, almost 170ft above the streets on his mighty granite column.

Opening the battle with the signal 'England expects that every man will do his duty', Nelson steered his fleet to a glorious victory, only to be cut down by a French sniper on the deck of HMS Victory. As he breathed his last, the battle was won and Britain was saved.
