The London Iconoclast Commission – destroying London’s heritage

The mayor of London has announced a commission to look at ‘diversity in the public realm’. The blurb states ‘London is one of the most diverse cities in the world, with more than 300 languages spoken every day. Yet its statues, plaques and street names largely reflect a bygone era.‘ To which any right-thinking person says, of course, because statues, plaques and street names reflect the past. To try and change them is to erase history.

New statues, plaques and street names can reflect what the local communities democratically want. But to fiddle with the past is outrageous.
