Sadiq Khan Declares ‘London Is Open For Business’ With Giant Statue Of Black Dildo In Trafalgar Square

It’s meant to signify that London is open for business.

There are many ways to signify that somewhere is open for business – signs, announcements, business cards etc – but I’m not really sure that creating a statue of a giant thumbs up where the thumb looks more like a huge dick is really one of the best ideas for this.

Despite that though, London Mayor Sadiq Khan thought that it was a good idea to commission David Shrigley to produce a giant sculpture of a thumbs up in Trafalgar Square to proclaim that ‘London was open for business’ and unveiled it today. In theory, that sounds like an OK idea but in practice the sculpture looks absolutely terrible – even before you realise that the giant thumb kinda looks like a huge black dildo:

Yeah, that’s not really convincing anyone and the fact that it was unveiled today in the rain only adds to the drab denouement that it’s projecting. Despite this Shrigley said that he hopes that it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy.

Not really sure what he means by that – that he hopes London gets fucked up the ass by a giant black dildo? Certainly possible in the current political economic climate so maybe it will end up being self fulfilling. Only time will tell.
