    After recent attacks that have seen statues of Sir Winston Churchill and Abraham Lincoln on Parliament Square in London vandalized, the most important national war memorial in Whitehall (London) defaced, and a statue of a 17th century member of parliament pulled down in Bristol, one of the most prominent members of Boris Johsnon's cabinet, Home Secretary Priti Patel has announced her support for a national law protecting historic monuments and harsh penalties for vandalizing them.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2020/06/08/uk-lockdown-coronavirus-news-quarantine-update-review-boris/

    Patel is a strong conservative and fierce opponent of "political correctness" who was born in Uganda of Indian parents.

    This move comes as people across rural England vow to come to London to physically defend monuments, BLM announces 60 it wants to take down, and London's Muslim mayor announces wide ranging plans to remove and replace monuments and rename streets, squares, and parks.
