Though the statue of Winston Churchill was deemed acceptable for continued display, vandalism has cause the city to box it up. Here’s what the Churchill statue currently looks like:

The statue of the man who warned against appeasement has to get boarded up to stop it being vandalised by anti-fascists; the statue of the man who visited & praised Hitler, & insisted that the Nazis were arming "for defence, not for an attack," doesn't.
It's all so confusing… pic.twitter.com/qQa70uKPuF
