"Raising the statue will, in any case, only result in people injuring themselves attempting to put the cone on anyway: does anyone really think that a raised plinth will deter drunk Glaswegians?"

Indeed! :lol:

Just do what the US would do.. mount a permanent guard of armed cops with 'shoot to kill' orders.. :twisted:

… and thus would end in a bloody mess.

Not only because of the blood thirsty armed cops, but because in the US setting the drunk Glaswegian (and his pals!) would be armed, too!

Not a pretty picture to draw before your inner eye…

I have been on the German Wheat beer and have an insatiable urge to cone a statue!

Something is telling me I shouldn't post when drinking......

Correct.. you should be out, hunting up traffic cones instead. :twisted:

"Just do what the US would do.. mount a permanent guard of armed cops with 'shoot to kill orders."

We haven't reached the Gestapo mentality yet, but mighty close with Obama dictatorship.
We would just put up those gosh darn poky cameras , record the activity and then put them on shows like american favorite movies, cops, outrageous police actions and even on Utube. nothing quite like public humiliation. What ever happened to stocks in the main square *sigh*

Not necessarily. Obama gets a lot of criticism from the left as well, because many of his policies (especially regarding matters of security) are virtually indistinguishable from George W. Bush's. Drones, anyone? The continuing existence of Guantanamo, anyone? The still totally overblown "Homeland Security" apparatus, in which nothing has changed, anyone? The ongoing war on whistleblowers, anyone? The total lack of any consequences for the warmongers of '01-'08, anyone? And last but not least, the total surveillance of practically everybody on this planet, anyone?

If I were the Nobel Peace Price committee, I'd feel really awkward about my choice for 2009 in the meantime.

Ahh, Hoegaarden. I really enjoy that from time to time. I have over 25 of their half pint speciality glasses with an offer they were having of buy four bottles and get a glass free.

I still have a Hoegaarden glass, but mine was 'borrowed' from my local pub back in '97 (I did know the publican well).
