Councillors up for ‘free’ Thatcher statue in Grantham
Further support has been expressed for a statue of Margaret to be erceted in Grantham.
Longtime advocate Coun Ray Wootten asked deputy leader Kelham Cooke at a full meeting of South Kesteven District Council if it would welcome a statue of the former prime minister, who was born and bred in Grantham.
Coun Cooke replied: “Yes, if there’s no charge, then absolutely. Regardless of what we think of her politics, she was the first scientist PM as well as the first woman PM. If there’s a statue going for free, we might as well accept it.”
