Alcock the rooster

1st Cecil Rhodes, now Alcock the rooster: Oxbridge Students call for bronze cockerel to be sent back to Africa

Students have called for a bronze statue adorning a Cambridge college to be returned to Nigeria after it was looted from the country in the 19th Century.

In a row similar to the furore that has engulfed Oxford’s Oriel College, students at Jesus College, Cambridge have voted in favour of telling their master the statue should be returned.

The cockerel statue is a Nigerian Benin Bronze, of which more than 2,000 sit in museums and collections across the globe.

    Have the students purchase it from the college, at a suitably inflated price; then they can return it to the ‘rightful owners’.

    Cheers

    Hey, what about all the the taxpayers that had their pay checks looted to fund their fake education. When do I get that back from these career students with no actual value to be employed.

    Black racists hate whitey, then demand that whitey give them aid.
