Keep the Bradford Robert peel statue

Robert peel had no direct involvement with the slave trade, his father also Robert peel did, the one in question here created the metropolitan police force and was one of our greatest prime ministers, we need to respect him and honour him not take down his statues. His wealth may have derived and benefitted from the slave trade, this is no reason to tear down our history. Lots of great iconic people played a part in the slave trade including all religions and races so if we wanted to remove everything that was a reminder there would be nothing left in the world, this is our history and our children deserve to know about it and be able to see it!
