Margaret Thatcher

Prime Minister: 1979 - 1990. Born Grantham. MP for Finchley: 1959 - 1992. A Marmite politician of the highest order - her death was greeted with a rare mix of immoderate panegyrics and gleeful celebrations.

2017: The proposal for a 10-foot statue in Parliament Square was cancelled due to the likelihood (near certainty) of vandalism.

2021: In the midst of a scandal about the costs of erecting the statue in Grantham, sculptor Mark Robla placed on the waiting plinth a sculptured severed head (Thatcher's) on a spike, saying that it saved the Council a fortune.

2022, 16 May: The Sydney Morning Herald reported: "A statue of Margaret Thatcher was egged within two hours of being placed in her home town". And by the next day someone had set up a stall next to the statue selling eggs, at £10 each. Private enterprise at its finest - Thatcher would have approved.
