    A certain Robert Jenrick has written ‘Our view will be set out in law, that such monuments are almost always best explained and contextualised, not taken and hidden away’.  He appears to  think that removing the Edward Colston statue from the middle of Bristol, and placing it in an appropriate museum, is taking and ‘hiding away’?  I know museums are not freely open at the moment, but this does seem a rather extreme view.  Those of us who are regular museum visitors (when we can be) may beg to differ!
