Glasgow and 'The Duke'

Now here's a sight you don't see every day - Glasgow's famous Duke of Wellington statue without a traffic cone on his head.

I'm surprised some of the Glasgow's self-righteous statue 'protesters' haven't called for the Duke to be toppled because he has a much more chequered history than Robert Peel whose statue stands in George Square.

But I suspect Glaswegians would respond furiously if the Duke and his war horse (Copenhagen) were really threatened so the statue 'bampots' are likely to leave well alone.

Here's how the Duke normally looks - so is it any wonder that Glasgow has grown to love the guy?
