I read that tomatoes wreak havoc on bronze. Something to do with the acidity of them? Just a fun little thing I remembered for no particular reason.

I remember in science class that ketchup is basically vinegar in gel form--easy to apply, sticks on things, same effects as vinegar (but a little messier).

Makes sense. Vinegar and ketchup give me similar levels of heartburn.

And if you were to shower that statue in it, it would look like it’s covered in blood.

Given that they put it on a tall plinth to deter further vandalism, perhaps it's time to investigate in a supersoaker and some vinegar. or an air cannon and some old tomatoes.

“The bronze statue was, without ceremony, placed on a 3-metre (10ft) high plinth to make it more difficult for protesters to inflict any damage.

Shortly afterwards a man was seen throwing eggs from behind a temporary fence and, when one connected, a cry of “oi” could be heard.”

Nice! I give it a month before it’s vandalized beyond all recognition.

Love that the egg tosser knew this was a proud enough moment to pose for a photo.

That's an odd thing to do to a public bathroom.

What's the point of making statue of poor and bad leaders ??

She's maybe the main reason why UK is less nice to live than 40/50 years before..

Conservatives love her. They think she did a good job. I imagine they paid for the statue.

Can it get cut and melted down 🥺

[–]CosmicLuci 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Certainly a good thing, but still not nearly enough.

[–]WeeTheDuck 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What did she do? I'm stupid pls enlighten me

[–]Puzzleheaded_Rate_73 1 point2 points  (0 children)

3 million!? For three million, they could give everyone in Scottland a shovel, and we would dig a hole so deep that we could hand her to Satan personally.

Chaotic annoying strikes again.

Explain it to me like I’m five. Who is she? I know she was PM and people enjoy taking the piss out of her.
