Planned Margaret Thatcher Statue Will Be Target of Vandals, Police Say

A statue planned for the former prime minister’s home town of Grantham will need to be put on a plinth ten feet high to protect it from vandals, police have said.

The £300,000 memorial to the Tory Party’s last staunchly-conservative prime minister was intended to take its place amongst other great political figures in Parliament Square, opposite the Palace of Westminster,

but the plan was rejected on grounds that it would, too, be a target for leftist activists.

The sculpture, by artist Douglas Jennings, needs final approval by South Kesteven district council in Lincolnshire, according to The Times,

with the council’s crime prevention coordinator writing in a preliminary report that the artwork would need to be placed on a “sufficiently high plinth” to deter attacks.
