Good question. I know there's one of Harold Wilson in his home town, but don't know of many others.

There is, it's in my hometown :)

Ah, there's a well deserved statue to Barbara Castle, Labour prototype of Mrs Thatcher, in Westminster.

Hmmm... :huh:


It's probably something to do with the fact that she's responsible for creating future generations of vegans... :hihi:

Not quibbling, just wondered why you had to exaggerate 

Is it even an exaggeration? They couldn't get it placed at their preferred location. They went looking for alternative sites and what we are assuming to be their first alternative location accepted it. I doubt they'd have given up looking for alternative locations if Grantham had said no too.

The poster has admitted his exaggeration.  Why on earth would Grantham say no to having the opportunity to be the home of a statue for the first female British prime minister who was born in their town?  The truth is Grantham has benefited from the ludicrous decision by the Westminster council not to allow the statue to be erected in a suitable place in the capital city of Great Britain.

Irrational behaviour of those who complain about a statue in her memory in the town of her birthplace is a good way to start.

You ought to put your glasses on - both to read what people actually wrote and to see who actually made the comments.

Your inability to understand why other people don't genuflect at the mere mention of Thatcher's name aside, what do you think those behind the statue would have done if the first two places they tried to get it erected had both turned them down?

You've lost the plot. It will be  thirty two years in November since Margaret Thatcher resigned as Prime Minister.  Rational people who disagreed with her politics  have moved on as in the same way rational people in the late seventies didn't decide not to buy a better German car  instead of a poorer  British Leyland car because  Adolf Hitler bombed some chip shop somewhere in Britain.
