‘Many towns have a statue of Queen Victoria looking as though some syrup of figs might help; Kingston has a gloriously gilded statue of Queen Anne, in front of an Italianate former town hall’ (and, in the foreground, the Shrubsole Memorial)
‘David Mach’s dramatic ‘Out of Order’ has been dividing opinion since it went up in 1989′
