Yes, yes, we all know that diversity is the mantra of our age, the value above which nothing can be placed. It’s still entirely possible for people to misunderstand matters though, as here:
The head of the Lake District National Park Authority in Cumbria says the rugged landscape excludes too many people and must change to attract a more diverse mix of visitors.
The entire point of heritage sites and national parks is that things must not be changed. They are to remain as they were. That’s why we have the rules shouting that people may not build in them, may not change the way they do things.
To demand that the Lake District changes is like insisting that Bath get rid of all that Georgian rubbish, the Barrier Reef clear all that coral out the way of the water skiers.
Sheesh, can’t people grasp the most basic ideas?
