It seemed the debate over Trafalgar Square's fourth plinth was settled: after Boris' election pledge to install a statue of Sir Keith Park was shot down, the space would continue to home modern art. But perhaps not: Prospect magazine reckons Westminster council plans to erect a statue of our dear Queen once she's pegged it. Like her nearby relative George IV, the scheme would see Liz on horseback, though we're not sure that would be a fitting tribute to the long-serving monarch: perhaps a depiction of a sozzled Maj zonked out in front of EastEnders would embody her reign more appropriately - she's always been more Albert Square than Trafalgar.
