Would the last sane person...

...leaving Britain... please remember to bring the Union Jack?

-- Work is to start on a giant sculpture of a naked woman which is to be carved into the Northumberland landscape.

The "Goddess of the North" will be made from 1.5 million tonnes of earth from the Shotton mine, near Cramlington.

It is estimated it will take two years to construct and cost £2.5m.
I don't get it.

My 3rd great grand parents left that area with their family for Canada in 1817 - they had the good sense to raise oats, farm animals and children on the free land, not giant nude women. And yes, they brought the Union Jack. Remind me to skip that sculpture when I visit the parish in Hartford.

Perhaps we could make the oil sands, post-development, look all pretty like this - a giant tree with ducklings resplendent might please Green Peace.

It's perfectly logical.

Hiding in plain site, if you ask me, difficult for the hairy arm-pit crowd to complain. Brilliant on the company's part - and who reaps the revenue from visits?

I agree Tim - the arm pits would love to see Suncor create tourist jobs for the Athabasca wilderness - for all those people who visit the Edmonton Mall.
