Only 4 responses you need to today’s Daily Mail’s front page about Winston Churchill’s statue

It’s not the first time this has happened, and neither is it the only statue that’s been boarded up, but it’s this one that the Mail is particularly excited about.

It’s a fucking statue you weird freaks. Set our greatest hero free? What do you think he’s gonna do? Run off to the rest of the Churchills in the forest? pic.twitter.com/vyu2lQOVwp
