A truly excellent idea

There has been an empty plinth in Trafalgar Square ever since the middle of the 19th Century, when the planned equestrian statue of William IV failed to eventuate. Recemt attempts to fill the gap have included a naked, pregnant, disabled woman, and a very underplayed Christ. But what we need is a good old-fashioned equestrian statue, preferably of a heroic leader. And, thanks to the Social Affairs Unit's Christie Davis, we have the perfect candidate.


Morning in Trafalgar

A quick public subscription, and job done. It'd be worth it just to watch Ken Livingstone have an aneurism...

That is an excellent idea!

The thought brings tears to the eyes - and I speak as a paid up member of the 'Ronnie on Rushmore' campaign

Splendid idea. Although part of me would like to see some tribute to the Landrover. Countless numbers of these noble beasts have given their lives for their country with thousands more risking all on the front line as we speak.
