From The Guardian:
Warnings that a new statue of Margaret Thatcher would attract egg-throwing protests came true within two hours of it being installed in her home town of Grantham on Sunday.
The bronze statue was, without ceremony, placed on a 3-metre (10ft) high plinth to make it more difficult for protesters to inflict any damage.
Shortly afterwards a man was seen throwing eggs from behind a temporary fence and, when one connected, a cry of "oi" could be heard.
Nature is healing.
