IT HAS BEEN REMOVED SO MANY TIMES BY THE COUNCIL BUT SOMEHOW IT ALWAYS SEEMS TO GET BACK UP THERE AND ITS NOT A SMALL STATUE ITS PRETTY FUCKING BIG SO WHOEVER KEEPS ON PUTTING UP THERE IS A DETERMINED WEE FUCKER
IT HAS BECOME A NATIONAL SYMBOL FOR GLASGOW CAUSE ITS JUST THE EPITOME OF GLASWEGIAN HUMOUR AND THEY EVEN PAINTED THE CONE FUCKING GOLD FOR THE OLYMPICS
AND A FEW MONTHS AGO THE COUNCIL SAID THEY WERE GOING TO RAISE UP THE STATUE SO PEOPLE COULDNT PUT THE CONE ON AND LET ME TELL YOU IT WAS FUCKING PANDAEMONIUM ABOUT GLASGOW IT WAS AS IF WORLD WAR THREE HAD BROKEN OUT THERE WERE FACEBOOK PAGES AND PROTESTS AND PETITIONS AND ALL SORTS TO KEEP THE CONE ON
SO LONG AND SHORT OF IT IS THAT THIS STUPID STATUE AND ITS STUPID CONE IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SCOTS IN PARTICULAR GLASWEGIANS CAUSE WE CANT DECIDE WHETHER WE WANT TO RULE OUR OWN COUNTRY OR NOT BUT IF YOU FUCKING DARE TRY TO TAKE THE CONE OFF THE DUKE OF WELLINGTONS HEAD THERE WILL BE A NATION WIDE OUTRAGE AND GLASGOWS OWN VERSION OF LES MIS WILL HAPPEN I AINT FUCKING KIDDIN
every time I see this post (i.e. about twice a year at this point) I am reminded of this book my gran had when I was a wee, wee kid.
it was a typical ladybird-style hardcover little book with illustrations and stuff, aimed at 3 year olds, with anthropomorphic vehicles going to iconic cities of the world and shit. I canNOt remember what the taxi was called, but she went to Glasgow, and the illustration of Glasgow involved the back of GOMA where this statue is, and it had a wee cone drawn on the top
it was so iconic that a children’s book artist drew a fucking cone on this statue and it was THE DEFINITIVE symbolic landmark of Glasgow
i think OP is underestimating the sheer power of the cone here. it’s been up since the early 80s at least. i’ll ask some older relatives later but like… this cone is iconic enough that i’d expect it to be on our currency in 15 years.
a facebook protest group which still posts and the wikipedia page for the statue itself are testament to the legacy of the Cone of Destiny. i cannot stress enough how sudden and violent the furore in response to plans to keep the cone off was. it was literally 100% of all local media for a few days. ~15% of the city’s population liked the protest page in a single day after plans were announced.
cone is love, cone is life.
Also, fun fact, due to the outrage over plans to adjust the statue amassing so quickly and so loudly, the plans were cancelled 16 hours later. Literally the next morning the council just went ‘our bad guys. Soz.’ The statue had a police presence for about a week after. And then when they left it had two cones (one on the horse), an iron man mask and a Hawaiian shirt.
Let the kids be !
