I would get very physical if I saw anyone desecrating Horatio, my hero since the age of Seven. I wonder if the statue is in eBay yet? He’d look brilliant screwed to the roof of my van.Horatio has already been de platformed as result of BLM I'm afraid. The Guardian is loving it. As is the BBC.

It was a term used in the laws of the British Empire to describe collectively the imperial possessions. It covered colonies, mandated territories, protectorates and dependencies, etc.At least on the 14 British territories (modern PC name for a colony) scattered around the world
Apologies if mentioned upstream. When the next major hurricane hits, who will they be holding their hands out to?
...but her range is so great.Just watching the live feed. Rhianna has just been awarded the honour of National Hero in one of the first acts of the Republic. May I say, in line with the gravitas and dignity of the occasion: “well done, nice norks”.
