There doesn't seem to be any coherent community spirit left in Sherriff street, sadly.

"community spirit" The same old line wheeled out to describe inner city areas.

I think it’s a hideous looking statue really awful. Perhaps if the media stopped reporting the vandalism of it, the scrotes would stop.

Nah, it'll still end up on social media anyway.

Well this is different. It’s not even funny this time no creative element nor nothing just paint thrown on

To both statues; in different locations in what seems a coordinated attack. Did Luke ever play a few tunes for the nazis?

If I was a 16 year old scumbag and knew that something as easy and crude as daubing paint on something gets loads of news coverage each and every time without fail...

Luke was staunchly leftist but I wouldn't class him as Looney brigade from what I read of him.

This isn't my own cup of tea as I prefer less not more state involvement in people's lives, but it is worth noting how Marx in his writings clearly distinguished between proletariat and lumpen proletariat. He didn't have much time for the latter. He saw them merely as a tool to be used by bourgeois interests. He saw them for what they were.

Modern day Irish, or indeed British, politics does not seem to get this. Like, at all.

Either Michael D. is smaller than I imagined or that statue is absolutely monstrous.

Ah for god sake I’m sick of hearing about poor old Luke kelly and all this vandalism of trees etc

Is it time to just put in a museum cause it’s just going to keep happening.

Also what exactly are the consequences if these scumbags get caught answer is none so there just going to keep doing it.
