Removing statues and deleting history is not the answer - understanding the past and preserving it is.

My Grandad worked for the Gladstone Estate before the First World War. I am proud of the old connection and the history of my Country.

Erasing History will not make the future brighter or the world safer. It will do the opposite and remove the reminders we have created of our fore fathers. A Statue is not necessarily support of a persons actions rather it is a reminder of those actions and we as society need to reflect on the past to have a better chance to positively shape our future.

I think ignoring/eradicating/suppressing our history is completely counterproductive and ignores all the good that people, such as Gladstone, did. At worst, it is illiberal.
