Statue is ‘not right’

I think that to put the statue of the pregnant woman right in the middle of Ilfracombe is ‘not right’. It is not everyone’s cup of tea and should not be forced on the public.

If Mr Hirst is so keen on putting it somewhere on show, then why doesn’t he put in his garden so that all his friends and relatives and neighbours can enjoy it.

Contrary to what the media tells us, the sight of a pregnant woman with no clothes on is not the most attractive sight in the world. Perhaps there is a hall or a shed somewhere where it could go on a plinth?
