I HAVE no particularly strong opinions one way or another on Oliver Cromwell.

But the debate over his statue got me thinking.

Surely it would be better to have a statue of someone who has made a difference to Warrington?

Everyone loves the Brian Bevan one.

So how about Pete Postlethwaite or JB Priestley outside somewhere?

I’m sure others have better options.

They matter far more to the town than Cromwell.
