So a statue of Queen Boudicca lies near Houses of Parliament and it's a little bit confusing, she razed London to the ground yet the very same city that she razed to the ground built a statue of her and praises her? Surely it would make more sense to have a statue of the Roman General Suetonius Paulinus who tried to defend London from being razed to the ground?

It should be replaced with a statue of Thatcher.

Yes there were slaves but the majority were civilians or even her own people who agreed to live by the Roman laws, don't tell me assumptions as it's pointless since I know the facts, and why the chavy language? It doesn't change the fact that she took her revenge on innocent people, she should have took her revenge on the senior tax collector who treated her horribly not go on a mad rampage killing innocent people.
