Hands Off Mrs Pannkhurst

Aug. 23, 2018

 Spotted in the Telegraph by Roving Reporter GD

It would be funny if it were not so sad and ridiculous to see the manoueverings engendered ( we can only assume ) by the arrival - finally - of the statue of one lone women in the Parliament Square "gentlemen's club" of 11 chaps. Why, WHY would this statue of Emeline Pankhurst, paid for and placed by suffragettes, need to be moved on to a site with no connection ( despite attempts to argue to the contrary ) to her?

Frankly, the mind boggles.
