And There He Was, Gone…
Stephen tells me that the inevitable has happened – Naffed-Off Nelson, just outside the Trafalgar Tavern, has gone. Whether he’s been half-inched or removed before he was half-inched I don’t know.
As regular readers will know, I didn’t care for the statue – I thought it showed a great naval hero, who was, by all accounts a handsome devil and popular with the ladies, as looking suspciously like a grumpy version of Kermit the Frog (also handsome in his way and popular with certain ladies with long swishy hair and pointy pink ears, but come on…) – but the very fact that we can’t keep public art on show for fear of it disappearing overnight is a really deplorable state of affairs.
The proverbial ‘something’ needs to be done.
