Desecrations

by Andrew Stuttaford
If you are looking for other acts of desecration in Britain today, there are at least two pictured in this Daily Mail account of demonstrators rioting in London (nine police officers are also reported as seriously injured). If you scroll down through the story, you can see a demonstrator swinging from one of the flags that fly at the cenotaph originally built to honor Britain’s war dead from World War One. And if that isn’t nauseating enough, scroll down further still and there’s an image of someone urinating on the plinth of the statue of Winston Churchill that stands in Parliament Square. Charming.
