Fourth plinth is looking for taker

Oh dear, what will your correspondent, Stephen Jackson, threaten us with next?

Little green men and UFOs on the Polgrove?

Mr Jackson should be reassured in that the last military dictator in England, he who murdered the monarch and put his troops around parliament to send the buggers home, was so well thought of that a statue of him was erected outside parliament.

Winston Churchill, as First Lord of the Admiralty, even tried to have a dreadnought battleship named after him, overruled by the King who refused to have one of his ships named after a regicide.

If we should have a military take-over then the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square is looking for a suitable taker.
