The man was a brutal butcher and we should not be celebrating him in 2020

There are better options of admirable human beings to commererate than this man. His legacy is soaked with blood money. I don't want to see that kind of hatred being honoured in statue form.

Time for change. Just because the statue is historical doesn't mean it's worth celebrating. Let's get Captain Tom up there!

Thanks for adding your voice.

As an old boy of a school which had a “Clive” House, I am working to have them change that and also want to offer you support

Thanks for adding your voice.

I lived from age one to eighteen in Shrewsbury, and I know my town can be better than this.

Shropshire has other people much more deserving of a statue than him. AE Houseman perhaps?
