A statue of former United Kingdom Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was pelted with eggs two hours after it was positioned in its new dwelling on Sunday morning.

The statue of Thatcher was met with verbal and bodily assaults corresponding to egg throwing and booing after it was positioned onto a 10-foot granite platform in Thatcher’s hometown of Grantham, Lincolnshire, in line with the Irish Examiner. In response, police put up a short lived barrier across the statue.


After getting approval from a planning committee in February 2019 for the £300,000, or roughly $367,349, statue to be constructed, the revealing was pushed again as a result of coronavirus pandemic, in line with the outlet.
