What Gosport needs is a big pregnant woman of its own

Wow, how I wish I was a resident of Ilfracombe, about to get Damien Hirst’s amazing pregnant woman statue put up in my car park.

It’s a stunning sculpture and while some locals are apparently less than keen on a large naked woman with an upraised sword hanging about next to the ticket machine for the next 20 years – a long time to wait to find someone with the correct change – I think it’s magnificent.

I like the idea so much that I will be going to visit it at some point.

Maybe we should consider using Gosport as a showcase for massive pieces of art like this, stealing Ilfracombe’s tourist generation idea at the same time.

Now that would be a bold plan to boost the waterfront.
