Boarding up of the statue of Winston Churchill and the Cenotaph

A very disappointing response from the Prime Minister in relation to the boarding up of the statue of Winston Churchill and the Cenotaph just weeks after the whole country commemorated VE Day.

You cannot give in to the rule of the mob by appeasing thugs and criminals.

The police should be doing their job by maintaining law and order as well as protecting the public and property.

Winston Churchill stands tall in Parliament Square as an example that extremism demands resolute action and needs to faced down not retreated from.
