I support calls to remove the Thomas Picton statue in City Hall

Statement on Thomas Picton statue, Cardiff City Hall:

"I am very pleased to see the swift response from Huw Thomas, Cardiff’s council leader, saying he supports calls to remove of the statue of Thomas Picton from the Marble Hall in City Hall. 

"It’s great that we will recognise the contribution of the first black head teacher in Wales, Betty Campbell, with a statue outside Cardiff central station in the next few years. She was chosen by public vote – and I hope we can get suggestions from the public as to who should replace Thomas Picton in City Hall too."
