One thought on “The UK government responded to Black Lives Matter – by protecting statues

  1. Ten years is a disproportionate penalty for damage to statues/memorials/property, given the many more life-obliterating crimes such as death by careless/dangerous driving, which despite proven high degrees of culpability, even repeat offending, very very rarely attract the maximum sentences prescribed and deserved. But it is also galling to watch the hatred and ignorance that fuels or influences iconoclastic behaviour on a pretext of the right to protest and free speech; chaos that leads to repressive, sterile regimes or dictatorships – none of any creed desirable.
