UK Student Union President promises to “take down mural of white men” who died in WW1

Emily Dawes, who's the Student Union President of Southampton University, said in a tweet, "Mark my words- we’re taking down the mural of white men in the uni Senate Room, even if I have to paint over it myself".  

The mural in question's a painting of young men who had attended Southampton University but left at the outbreak of WW1 to fight for their country and sadly never came back.  

The young men in the painting are receiving the degrees they would've earned had they finished their studies. It was created in honour of the hundreds of thousands of young men who bravely fought for the UK and died while fighting.  

Sadly, this kind of toxic ideology's all too common in universities across the UK, with many students subscribing to an aggressive progressive ideology that seeks to wipe out white men from history.  

A similar event occurred at Manchester University recently where students painted over a Rudyard Kipling memorial, arguing he was a "racist".  

In an apology tweet, Emily Dawes said she apologized for "the offense and upset I've caused", but failed to apologise for anything she actually said, instead claiming that her intention was to "promote strong, female leadership".
