SCOTTISH Liberal Democrat MSP Willie Rennie has called for greater recognition of the role Scotland played in the British Empire with the establishment of a Museum of Empire and Slavery.

Rennie, MSP for North East Fife, said a Museum of Empire and Slavery should “inform and educate about the role of Scots in the slave trade and the colonial era”.

He claimed cyber-nationalists attempted to frame the British Empire as a “uniquely English project”, and that Glasgow and Scotland needed to take “its share of the blame”.

Cities such as Edinburgh and Bristol have committed to formally acknowledging their roles in slavery.

The Scottish Government is currently considering responses to recommendations from a steering group on “attitudes to Scotland’s museums and racism”, including a suggestion for a dedicated space to address the legacy of colonialism in Scotland.

So, should Scotland establish a Museum of Empire and Slavery? Vote in our poll, and let us know what you think in the comments.
