UK government, Piers Morgan react after Oxford students vote to remove Queen Elizabeth's pic from common room saying she ‘represents colonialism’



Reactions have trailed the decision by students of Oxford's Magdalen college in the UK to take down a painting of Queen Elizabeth from their common room stating that she "represents colonialism."


Members of the students committee concluded that the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II will now be replaced by “art by or of other influential and inspirational people.”







During the vote to remove the picture one student commented that “patriotism and colonialism are not really separable” .


While another added that the picture of the queen must be ditched because “This is about our communal space and making people feel welcome”, according to Guido Fawkes.


And in the future if any pictures of the Queen or the Royal family are to be hung in the common it must be decided by a vote.Latest Post Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
