I'd give the statue toppling a miss today

Toppling statues 'thrills the heart' of the ABC's Julia Baird and NINE's David Campbell

As our good mate Peter Ford says:

Who decides what statues are or aren’t acceptable David? What if I don’t approve of Mary MacKillop as I hate the Catholic Church. What if I think Mary Poppins is bad for kids can I go & rip down PL Travers statue in Rockhampton? Or is everyone just free to to do as they please?
