Gordon Brown, then we can take pot-shots at him.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Tragfalgar Square - 4th Plinth

If there were to be famous people doing it, I'd rather see someone that could actually entertain the public while they were doing it... rather than just sort of standing there.
I do know that one friend has applied for it though, not been successful so far, but he is hoping Smiley
I'm not sure I see the point of haivng someone up there 24/7 either, as noone is going to come during the night shift and it would be fairly pointless to me.

Re: Tragfalgar Square - 4th Plinth

London seems to be going round the clock these days.  Anyone standing there will have a 24/7 audience.
I don't know about all the people but some are doing things whilst they are up there.  One woman planned to blow up and release 60 balloons which were sponsored for charity. I would imagine nobody would just stand there - would they?  Undecided

Re: Tragfalgar Square - 4th Plinth

But what after this - should they put a traditional statue up there sometime in the next few years -
maybe move the statue of Churchill up there from Parliament Square?.
