It's having its Saddam moment. Now the question is, who goes on the plinth instead ?

P.S. I thought someone else on BE might have started this thread.

Bristol: Has a nice suspension bridge that opened in 1864 as a toll bridge and it still cant be paid off as it still is one. Other than that I will rely on this link

I'm available on weekends.

But only for another two weeks and then the football starts again.
