Thatcher statue to be officially unveiled then officially toppled

A STATUE of Margaret Thatcher is to be erected then immediately pulled down and destroyed by a cheering crowd. 

The 15ft statue of the former prime minister will be officially unveiled in a lavish ceremony in Parliament Square, followed immediately by its official toppling.

A Royal Parks spokesman said: “This magnificent statue, honouring the greatest prime minister of the 20th century, will be officially presented to the public with a speech detailing her many achievements.

“The unveiling ceremony will then make way on the podium for the jeering mob who will list her many evils before knocking the statue over using a crane. They will then dance and cheer as it shatters on the ground.”

The spokesman added: “If it proves popular it could become an annual event.”
