Gift horse

Today a new statue replaced Le Coq Bleu in Trafalgar Square. I took this rather poor photo from a cab but if you look closely, you'll see something on one of its front legs. It is a ribbon with electronic advertising on it (how naff and who receives the revenue for that: Boris or the sculptor Hans Haacke?). I don't know if this will change over time but today it said, "Aberdeen Asset Management".


  1. How awful! I rather like the blue cock. I quite like that statue - a horse? - but NOT the advertising. Certainly not on its leg.

    Disgusted, formerly of Tunbridge Wells.
