Carey image defaced for second time


The image of King’s alumnus Lord Carey at the Strand Campus has been vandalised for the second known time.

It was discovered by Roar! staff at midnight on Sunday 10th February.

The former Archbishop of Canterbury made headlines last October for making controversial statements about same sex marriage at a Conservative Party fringe conference.

In response, Roar! started a campaign to remove Carey’s image from the Strand Campus windows of alumni and gained the support of Student Council.

It has now been over a hundred days since KCLSU student councillors voted overwhelmingly to lobby the College to remove the image.

Last night, red marker pen was used to cross out the words ‘Archbishop of Canterbury’, with ‘raging homophobe’ written next to it. Devil horns also feature in the defacement.

The identity of the vandal is currently unknown.
