Iconic Art

I'm popping along to the council offices tomorrow with a controversial new design idea for tackling persistent anti-social behaviour and as a deterrence against rogue architects, with a single display outside Droit House.

It will remain there until the new Turner Contemporary is built as a symbolic reminder and local work of art.

Is anyone against the idea?

Not a bad idea, though Im not entirely certain of the legality of using it...

Sandy Ezekiel for the first candidate!

No, no! Iris Johnstone 1st!!

A case can be made for Bowen Fuller and Charlie Young too. Perhaps if they all hold their breath...

James, it wasn't long ago you said Charlie Young had been reasonably helpful and did not stonewall you.(Much to my surprise as I have found him as useful as a chocolate teapot).
And yet you want to string him up!
Yes, you WILL make a politician!

If you persuade Iris Johnston it was for charity and we were going to raise money by imprisoning her in the cage and throwing wet sponges she is such a good sport she would probably do it.
As for the others I doubt they would as they are too full of their own importance (or in Charlies case too darn old, poor old buffer) but I would dearly like to wipe that smirk off Ezekiels face with a wet sponge.

Charlie disappointed me recently by setting the precedent that a Councillor doesnt always have to represent all his constituents if they dont share his political affiliation.

James, I am shocked by what you say about Charlie Young, he must be losing his marbles.
It is a well known tradition that if elected you must represent all your constituents regardless of whether they voted for you or not or share your political views.
Of course it doesn't pay to tell your councillor or MP that you are an active party worker for an opposing party if you want them to do something for you.
That would be one situation where discretion pays off.

At the end of the day it really is time for Charlie to hang up his zimmer frame, and as for the invisible Fuller, the other councillor for that ward - I've yet to register any impact from him at all.
I can't remember who I voted for now but I don't think it was either of those two, and it certainly wouldn't be in another election.
I tend to vote for the person not the party especially in local elections.
If you don't then you end up with councillors like these two.
