UK city removes statue of BLM protester after a day

The city of Bristol has taken down the statue of a Black Lives Matter protester that appeared on a plinth formerly occupied by a statue of Edward Colston. Bristol’s mayor, Marvin Rees, said that the replacement statue of Jen Reid had been put up without permission. ’We have established a history commission which will help us tell our full city history’, Rees added.

Good. People who have nothing better to do than tear down history are the type of bullies who are trying to make their mark on the world without actually doing anything that takes effort or dedication. If the city council decides that a statue should be removed because the person being depicted had a largely negative impact on society that's totally cool, but it should be done in a way that educates people about history. Also, for Pete's sake don't allow these craptivistic Bolshevik do-nothings to lionize themselves.

Thankfully, Marvin Rees, the Mayor, is sufficiently dark skinned (and part of the marxist Labour Party) such that the media won't be able to criticise him in any meaningful way. If he was a white conservative, he would be tarred as """far-right"""
