In town to see Bruno and Moon (there’s a double bill not to be sniffed at) I stopped by the Fourth Plinth a few times. Here’s what I saw.
This robot guy rotated slowly, taking pictures of all around. He was an excellent replicant and thankfully not painted Covent Garden dirty silver.
The next participant wore many T-shirts, each with a different slogan or statement. He took them off one by one and threw them to the crowd. And some of the crowd were happy to wear them.
Later, strolling drunkenly home, I saw a plinther ask his boyfriend Russ to marry him. Russ said yes and the crowd cheered.
