BBC Statue
« on: January 12, 2022, 08:56:58 pm »
There's a fella up a ladder outside the BBC bashing up the statue of Prospero and Ariel.  Police are in attendance  :clap: :clap: not doing anything like, but they're in attendance

Apparently it's because the statue was sculpted by Eric Gill who was a well-known sexual abuser of his "..Daughters, sisters and dog." This was at the end of the 19thC..    (.His dog??!)

It seems post 'Bristol 4'  that anyone can be targeted now, so you never know some City fan could unseat Ferguson yet with nothing to fear !  :grin: :grin:

If you are thinking about it look back at what Cass said about jury decisions not setting precedent first. Just a suggestion...

I'd like the Statue Of Liberty taken down. What a misnomer THAT is is in the modern day.. Or at least turned around.

IMO, it doesn't matter what statue it is. The people who are pulling them down are wrong. It's criminal and should be treated as such. Sick to the back teeth of these bloody scunners.  :angry: :angry: :angry:

They'll be there to ensure his safety so no one kicks seven shades of shit out of him.

No doubt he'll be found not guilty and granted compensation for the trauma he has suffered
