A COLLECTOR of golliwog memorabilia yesterday defended putting his collection on display at a museum despite accusations of racism.

Nick Martin, 68, lent 300 items ranging from badges to a teapot for the exhibition at the Westbury Manor Museum in Fareham, Hampshire.

“It’s only white English people who complain they’re racist. They were originally more of a tribute. It’s political correctness gone mad,” said Mr Martin.

“We hope that people are not offended,” said Tom de Wit, curator at the museum.
