    Don’t want to post the guy’s face but massive respect for the guy - literally an hour after Margaret Thatcher’s statue was unveiled - who was pelting a full carton of eggs at it.

    Unfortunately, this is actually deeply reprehensible behaviour. Eggs can be washed off simply and easily, with no damage done to the statue.

    Tomatoes, on the other hand, can begin a potentially irreversible process of corrosion of a bronze statue.

    Someone also suggested regularly scattering birdseed to drench the statue in shit. At this point it’s open season.

    Since posting this maybe an hour ago, I've heard that it was allegedly decapitated, then got taken down for repair, and some guy has put a plaster model of her head on a pike on the plinth.

    I take back my snarky comments, the good people of Grantham are doing the gods' work and I respect them so much.
