Tory fascism at work: weren’t they supposed to be AGAINST attacking statues?

Yes: the attack on a statue by police fulfils at least two of the 14 signs of fascism: protection of corporate power, and disdain for intellectuals and the arts.

It seems attacking statues is only bad if it represents something the Conservatives support – like slavery.

A statue that was adopted by Extinction Rebellion in the campaign group’s protest and blockading of printing plants owned by Rupert Murdoch’s media organisations last Autumn is fair game, it seems –

– even when it is displayed as part of an arts charity’s competition.

The police were called in – and more than 40 personnel broke into the building where the statue had been installed.

Here’s artist Damien Meade with the story:

And how about this?

All this happened at the beginning of the month but This Writer didn’t hear about it until today.

It remains well worth reporting because of the Tory hypocrisy evident in the raid, and the suggestion that both the police and the Conservative government were acting for a media corporation rather than upholding any law.
