Somehow I doubt this Labour gov would consider anything like this, they'd rather create a memorial for a living air headed celeb. :PDT_Xtremez_09:

Signed anyway!

You can see the cr@p, sorry "ART" that may be commissioned for the plinth at www.fourthplinth.co.uk (http://www.e-goat.co.uk/forums/www.fourthplinth.co.uk)

The most "normal" one appears to be, surprise surprise, Tracey Emin's meercat thing.

God bless Ken Livingston and all who sail in him! Tw@t

Update on the campaign to errect a statue to Sir Keith Park, OC 11 Group, during the Battle of Britian, on the 4th plinth in Trafalgar Square.

There is a petition to sign on the Downing Street website calling for support to errect this statue:

A worthy cause for support.

Thanks.

Sir Keith Park Memorial Campaign




Air Chief Marshal Sir Keith Rodney Park, GCB, KBE, MC and Bar, DFC, RAF



(15th June 1892– 6th February 1975)


Sir Keith Park commanded the Royal Air Force 11 Group Fighter Command – the squadrons which bore the brunt of the Battle of Britain. The failure of Nazi Germany to defeat the RAF in 1940 was Hitler’s first major setback – and forced him to call off his planned invasion of Britain. So it would be a fitting tribute to Park’s leadership that a statute of him should be both erected temporarily for six months on the 4th plinth in Trafalgar Square and permanently in Waterloo Place.


Dear Forum Member

The Sir Keith Park Memorial Campaign was launched on 7th March 2008 when Battle of Britain pilots, senior serving RAF officers, a great great niece of Sir Keith Park, politicians and many other supporters assembled in Trafalgar Square beside a full-size replica Spitfire.

Since the Campaign's launch we have received overwhelming support from amongst others: Boris Johnson, Mayor of London; the GLA; over 10% of all MPs have signed two EDMs, the latest is 'EDM 490 - Sir Keith Park Memorial Campaign'; a number of House of Lords members from all parties, and well known former politicians such as Tony Benn and Lord Tebbit. Cross-party support of all the New Zealand political parties and alongside this political support we have received the support of the RAF; Battle of Britain veterans; ex-services organisations; members of the Park family both resident in the UK and NZ and well-known individuals such as Sir Patrick Moore, Dan Snow, Edward Fox OBE, Peter Jackson (Director of the Lord of the Rings film trilogy) and Dr. Stephen Bungay. Thousands of people have now signed the Campaign’s petition in both in the UK and New Zealand.

The Campaign submitted its official planning applications for both a temporary statue on the 4th Plinth in Trafalgar Square and a permanent statue in Waterloo Place to Westminster City Council Planning Department in early 2009.
