Very sad news about Captain Tom, he was an inspiration - but as for statues & state funerals - What about
Bob Geldoff ? and his worldwide Band Aid concert of the 1980's, to raise awareness and funds for the Ethiopian
famine in 1983-1985. That was a phernomenal achievement as well, surely Bob Geldoff
( sometimes styled Sir Bob Geldoff because of his KBE ) deserves a statue as well ?
I always had him as a really private person... Maybe because of the mess with Hutchence.

I thought there was a statue of him somewhere. I think itís in Liverpool but could be mistaken.
