Plinth Charming

I've had a prominent link to it on the FOCD homepage for a couple of weeks now, but it occurs to me that I probably should also have written about it in the weblog…

There's an online petition to UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, to commission a statue of Charles Darwin to occupy the vacant plinth in Trafalgar Square. The petition is for UK citizens/residents only. Get over there and sign it, you chaps! (And don't forget to put FCD after your names!)

Citizens! Doesn't Downing Street know there is no such thing as a British citizen? No, in this twenty-first of centuries, we are still officially British subjects (of Her Majesty).

Writer and photographer Richard Carter, FCD is the founder of the Friends of Charles Darwin. He lives in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.WebsiteFacebookTwitterNewsletterBooks
