HATFIELD: Like Matthew said, I was in London at the Olympics and happened to be there with our CEO, Mark Parker. And he said, Tobie, I know you’ve been working on some things for people with special needs. So it was kind of natural, I think, for him to tell me about Matthew’s letter.
During the fifth century the Athena Parthenos was taken to Constantinople, the eastern capital of the Roman Empire. In the sixth century, the building was turned into a Christian church, The Church of the Parthenos Maria, or Virgin Mary. At least it was still a virgin.

Everyone from Enoch Powell to Tommy Robinson could have said the same thing.We would rightly call them racist for doing so but somehow we hold Boris to a different standard.Is it because he’s posh? That the bigotry is somehow more tolerable because it comes with an Eton and Oxford underwriting?(Image: AFP)He thinks it’s all got a bit out of hand.
