Total waste of money

Firstly I would like to offer my condolences to the council tax payers of Ilfracombe who stand to have yet another apparition forced upon them.

The significance of this statue to the town escapes me. As Ilfracombe is a sea port, wouldn’t a maritime theme be more appropriate? Of course North Devon has one of the highest proportions of unmarried mothers so as a previous reader suggested, could the statue be positioned near to the Barnstaple benefits office?

Another site could be on the “Stones Roundabout”, a site for misguided projects of “art”.

However there is some hope that an enterprising scrap metal criminal will remove it?

Good luck Ilfracombe council tax payers in your campaign to prevent this “folly” desecrating your town.
