An artist who erected a plaster head of Margaret Thatcher in her hometown of Grantham, Lincolnshire, says he has saved the taxpayer hundreds of thousands of pounds.  Markrobla, 34, placed his creation on a pike on top of the plinth that is awaiting the official £300,000 bronze statue of the former Prime Minister. He made the guerilla art ‘drop’ at 4am on Sunday at St Peter’s Hill green, reports Lincolnshire Live.  The i newsletter latest news and analysisEmail address is invalidThank you for subscribing!Sorry, there was a problem with your subscription.Mark, whose real surname is Roberts, the same as Mrs Thatcher’s maiden name, said of the creation which is called Shadow of Power: “I saved the council £400k and displayed my new piece. It depicts Margaret Thatcher’s head stuck onto a pike made from an office chair…while still clasping her iconic handbag at the base, all carved completely from plaster. “I paid about £5 for the chair and took it apart. There were two metal poles inside which I made into a pike. “It took about four months to complete and with materials, it cost about £100 in total.

.”  “I think what I did was all legal. I have done this sort of thing before. I was there at 4am in a hi-vis vest. I did not break in or damage the plinth.”Originally from Wales, Mark now lives in Grantham. He explained the pit closures meant the former premier was “never a positive figure” to him. The official bronze statue of Mrs Thatcher was bought by Grantham Museum, South Kesteven District Council, and a Public Memorials Appeal. Its unveiling – set to cost taxpayers £100,000 – has been postponed because of the pandemic.
