I think the statue has been built for a while for what it's worth. That said, the cleaning bill for it year on year isn't going to do the national debt any favours.

First female prime minister. She deserves a statue for that alone, but it's too early. She's still a very divisive figure, I think they need to give it another couple of decades really.

Statue has already been made costing 300k.
Thatcher's daughter carol objected to it being erected along with local residents.

Perhaps not the right time given the extreme left who don't require any more fuel for outrage! Any brief review of Che Guevara shows what kind of lunatics belong to the far-left/anarchists.

He's talking about Che, not Thatcher. The clue *should* be in the "revolutionary" part...

And the dead 40 years part... Thatcher died in 2013 I believe.

Look, I don't hate Thatcher in entirety. She did *some* okay things - stopping stagflation, paving the way for women politicians (although apparently she didn't like many, and thought of herself as a man). But, as someone else mentioned, it would be entirely inappropriate given the huge disparity of wealth in this country that her policies directly caused (capping income tax for the very wealthy, selling off council houses, privatising the utilities, etc etc)

Why make a Bronze statue of the Iron Lady? Not sure the ex Cornish tin miners would approve. They should make one out of cast iron & put it on Crosby beach with the Anthony Gormley statues. It would be worth a day trip every 10 years to watch her slowly turn to rust.

To be fair; the right to buy had been kicked about by both parties for a while. She just happened to be the one who did it.

We're in agreement on everything else though.

The right to buy was a great idea, it increased home ownership for people who would never have been homeowners

The problem was they didn't use the money to build more housing.

More accurately, the problem was councils were banned from using the money to build more houses even if they wanted to.

Yep, the government didn't want councils to have any social housing stock. Like I said it was a great idea, just done for the wrong reasons.

Well they needed to do something after losing all the miners assisted mortgages, The mines were building plenty of cottages for workers, as well as helping them onto the property ladder. Great system, shame it went with the mines really. IIRC, 'Right to buy' was actually a labour policy. They must have known the writing was on the wall for the mines, even if they didn't admit it.

Is this ( councils were banned from using the money) fake news as even during Thatcher's era lots of council houses were built though declining in number of new builds.
I cannot find any real data about your assertion , " councils were banned from using the money to build more houses even if they wanted to." A credible source or two linky should help.
I thought the problem was and is councils are not allowed to borrow to build social housing (and there is also shortage of land and there was a big discount on right-to-buy).

No, it wasn't Mrs May, it was the charity The Public Memorials Appeal.
