Letter: Unfair statues

It is a wonder to see such a magnificent statue hoisted into the Edinburgh skyline ("King Charles rides again", 25 October). May some righteous Parliamentarian see to it that he never returns from London.

Edinburgh has recently been subjected to three major new monstrotholiths: one to Adam Smith, economist; one to a mathematician; and was the other, by any chance, attributed to a Scotswoman, in order to strike up some semblance of gender balance atop the capitals plinths?

Nae! The other is tae a dog! That makes twa dogs and countless loons, an' ain sole quine within the hale toon. Catherine Sinclair (bless her and her clan) must be hootin' in her monument.
