Sky Arts’ weekly round-up of the week in Trafalgar Square was a classic this week.Â One of the guests in the studio was Brian Sewell.Â I have always thought he is a bit of a cock but I have changed my mind now and revised my opinion of him downwards.

I received the email today that told me I was not picked for the final tranche of people to take their place on the 4th plinth as part of Antony Gormley’s One & Other.Â While I am a little disappointed, that is far outweighed by relief.Â I have seen quite a few of the past […]

A little while back I mentioned how Andrew from Wongablog was going to be appearing on the 4th plinth in Trafalgar Square as part of Antony Gormley’s One & Other project.Â I was a bit jealous about that, especially as he got allocated a prime slot (4pm on a Sunday) but I’m now hoping that […]
