    Will be interesting what happens if it gets torn down by people that are sick of all this crap

    The way the country is heading, they'll erect a statue to Shamima Begum in it's place and everyone can dance around it and say what a role model she's been.

    Stick it in storage and send the bill and the cost of removing it to the artist. Sue him on behalf of Bristol tax payers if he says no. Enough taking the piss has gone on.

    more likely to invite him to to tea (fair trade, and organic of course) at the mayors place, and present him with a recyclable medal for services to the community.

    We live in a strange world, if it wasn't for the filming and death of George Floyd, Colston's statue would still be standing, people would still be walking past without a second look and we would never have heard of BLM movement, like i said strange world we live in.

    it seems to be a xxxx xxxx organization, they only see the "selfish egoistic side" they cannot see the underlying damage they are doing to their cause. The encouragement to the extremists ..the dislike of the cause by pushing and forcing it into peoples faces [ companies jumping on the band wagon ...and off again when they realise it is no more than a penny whistle organization ] Rashford did quite well, BUT SHOULD CONCENTRATE HIS ENERGY onfighting racism us
    oops wrote yesterday forgot to post reply!
    don't worry if it had it would have floated being plastic.....

    Marvin wouldn't allow a bill to be sent ...if it was he would sack them


    totally agree and the nation /s would be concentrating on an important issue like RACISM and covid,


    well she would eventually crawl out of the woodwork ..not seen anything myself of her "input" but a lot of peeps are using BLM to further their careers!

    ALL LIVES MATTER would have been better than all labs …...
