May 24th

On May 24th 1995, Harold Wilson, British Prime Minister 1964-70 and 1974-76 died of cancer. Wilson was a political, economic and social moderniser who sought to advance Britain through his championing of technocratic education. This quote from one of Britain’s great statesmen goes a long way in capturing how we move forward from the last few days and progress towards an tolerant, inclusive and peaceful world.

I’m an optimist, but an optimist who carries a raincoat.

Although evil, tragedy and setbacks will undoubtedly occur it must not detract from hope of a better future.
