I was sad to see that the monument of Jesse Boot had been vandalised overnight. It had stood in the same spot near the university for years and years without any problems. I understand from news reports that it was done by student activists, in reaction to raising university fees, government cuts and the like. Personally I think it's stupid to destroy such things, as it doesn't do any good. In fact it actually puts people off and makes them resent the protestors.
