Trafalgar Square has opened itself up to a whole load of trouble…

Look at meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

You know that Fourth Plinth business? The business about the Fourth Plinth (it’s a proper noun and everything, now) in Trafalgar Square being a rotating platform (literally) for art? Which we wave our Union Jack flag-ette at furiously in appreciation because we think it a very good thing? Yes, that.

Well, after what seems like an age of that funny plastic Stickle Bricks thing, they’ve (the powers that be. Boorish Johnson and chums, we assume) decided on what’s going to replace it. Namely Antony ‘Angel of the North’ (we bet he hates that. Apparently he’s done other work…) Gormley’s Blue Peter competition winner, ‘One&Other’.

In a nutty shell, he’s letting the people (that’s you, me, them and us) be the art. So, every hour for 100 days from 6th July, the plinth will be the stage for a different person to create their own ‘living monument’.

Also known as, 100 days of obnoxious twats showing off.

Also known as, jobbing actors. Just, jobbing actors.

Also known as, after a sesh down Soho everyone’s gonna be trotting down to hurl Burger King onion rings at ’em.

Also known as… *ooh, cock!*

Oh we forgot. If you’re one of those ‘Crazy is my middle name’ types and want to do cartwheels for light relief for an hour on the Fourth Plinth in London’s glittering Trafalgar Square, you need to register here. Then 2,400 will be picked randomly by a computerla. Ooh, democracy…

  3. Would they let me and Tequilla clamber up there and do our rendition of Janet Jackson’s If routine (including all dialogue from the ‘making of’ video)?

  4. I want the little queen who did the Beyoncé routine on YouTube. That would get everyone smiling and Traf Sq would be like an outdoors version of GAY for an hour. (Or longer if the weather was nice cos the gays would hang around tanning, cruising and drinking, natch).

  7. Oh, I forgot to answer your question, Pilar… But yes, they would. And I would even pay good money to stand and watch – maybe pay tuppence extra to heckle.
