Statue by Antony Gormley On Exeter College

Planning permission, what's that?  Don't the council know that Oxford University run this town?  First opportunity to get down and have a look at the new statue of a naked man on the corner of Turl and Broad Street's that was put up on Sunday with out planning permission.  The Labour Lord Mayor of Oxford officially unveiled the statue that has not been given planning permission, so I think we all know who she represents at council. Apparently it cost £250000 and is of the artist Anthony Gormley who was responsible for the Angle of the North.  I like it.

Total waste of money, we dont need this in Oxford, we have much better things to look at.
