Monday Poll - Question 9
It is the 2ooth anniversary of the abolition of the Slave Trade by the British Parliament. Tony Blair has expressed Britain's "deep sorrow and regret" for its role in the slave trade. However, some campaigners say that this falls short of the formal apology that is necessary for the rifts to be healed. On the other hand, some say that it isn't for the current government to apologise for events that took place so long ago, when different moral standards prevailed.
