Celebration of mob rule
SO this is Bristol 2021. We have a vandalised statue of a castigated Bristol benefactor meticulously renovated at great expense in order to preserve the graffiti (rubbish) scrawled upon it, including a word which the Post probably wouldn’t be allowed to print, in full view of the public.
All this to celebrate that ‘great’ day when mob rule and lawlessness prevailed in Bristol with much worse to follow.
At least it is in an appropriate place in M-Shed; for ‘M’ read Mockery.
I’m not going to waste my time writing to authorities who supported this action to suggest what should happen to the statue but suffice to say that so far I believe it is the only item named after Colston which still retains his name so it could be seen as a symbol of Bristol retaining its’ presence and dignity despite all that has been and still is thrown at our great city.
