^Agreed. I remember all that fuss over Tintin in the Congo when that was re-presented to the public. The attitudes and realities of the past aren't something that should be glossed over or forgotten, and yes, somethings like Christie's lines on those funny coloured folk may make you balk (and rightly so), but you only have to dial the UK back 30 years ago to remember such attitudes were still pretty prevalent, to say nothing about our current mistrust of anyone from the EU coming over here and taking all our benefits.

Heh, reminds me of a line from Accident Man in Toxic!, where the title character is setting up an elaborate political sting and goes to see an old lady in a nursing home "like most people of her generation, this turkey-necked trollop is a complete racist".
