And the problem is the 'optic', if you watched / listened to the boy from marketing's speech it is intended to be as inclusive of everyone as it gets. But no one buys it coz it's from Scotty even if he really really did mean what he said.And this event is truly a government event. It’s odd that it’s often people who think they are independent thinkers line up for these trinkets from the ruling class.
So the real problem is not the date itself, it's how the 'day' comes across. It comes across as 'rule Britannia and all and sundry should be thankful' even if in the last decade or so there's been a deliberate shift of narrative from that 'Britannia' optic.
I dunno maybe just maybe there is no appeasing our indigenous (or at least a small minority of them).
