United Kingdom: Egg throwing at Margaret Thatcher statue in her hometown

Must Read

The statue of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher recently erected in her hometown of Grantham was the subject of a group of people throwing eggs. According to reports from the “Sky News” broadcaster, today some motorists approached the monument whistling loudly and some witnesses heard a man shout: “Shoot it down”. Following this, protesters threw eggs at the statue, which cost around £ 300,000 and was originally destined for Parliament Square in Westminster.

The work was then placed in the city of the Lincolnshire region, due to fears of a “far left movement”, always reports the newspaper. Initially commissioned in 2019 but later built due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the statue was eventually erected on its granite pedestal in a central Grantham neighborhood. The South Kesteven provincial council had approved the inauguration ceremony in 2020 for a total cost of one hundred thousand pounds. To follow, even then, a Facebook group had proposed an “egg throwing contest” during the event, attracting the interest of over 13,000 people.
