Let me keep this short: Is it true that there was supposed to be another statue to be built in front of the University of London but was vetoed by Freddie's parents?

I think the plan was always to have one statue, but the city of London wouldn't allow it. That's why it ended up in Montreux. Nothing to do with Freddie's parents AFAIK.

Well I can understand it. I wouldn't want a huge statue of a dead gay guy in my backyard either.

It's not very well known, but there is, however, a statue of Freddie in Rotterdam:

There should be a Freddie erection in every major city of the world I say.
