    the BLM statue has been taken down before it was ripped  down and thrown into the harbour,, how anyone can think that replacing on controversial historical heritage  statue with a  loud mouthed criminal harpy  is beyond me.

    It isn't, that is why allowing the mob to rule is undemocratic.

    Its removal was a criminal act, since the statue was grade II listed and

    The statue was gifted to the "citizens of Bristol" by the donors who paid for it and in the absence of the "citizens of Bristol" having been allowed to express an opinion on its future in a public consultation we don't know what they would have wanted. The long-discussed proposal for the statue to be removed to a museum might have been a popular option.

    Most people in Bristol didn't want it removed and see what the nutters did as criminal damage. What does it matter what happened 200 years ago it's history.

    It is not known at all, those who were interested enough to vote, said they wanted it to remain.

    The mob are trying to rewrite history.

    Not unusual for the left.

  • The majority of the people of Bristol had no preference.  They'd probably have preferred Edward Colston or Jen Reid to an empty plinth.

    It did not (the majority, that is).  It was an act of vandalism by a small, irrational minority, who reckon that they can change history.
