    Reading the Daily Post, I am disappointed to read that some people are being critical of the sculpture, calling it “scrap” and saying the council have paid for it.

    Even if the sculpture were made out of scrap metal (and in a way, I hope it was) there is no need to be negative about it. If the council had paid for it (and the creator says not), then it’s the first worthwhile expenditure they’ve made in years!

    And, looking closely, I think the miner is leaning on a pick axe, not taking a pee. My dad used to tell me there was never time for a pee down the pit!!!

    If ex miners like it, then that is good enough for me. It is nice to see someone doing something without expecting monetary gain.

    Well straight away I can see your problem Rex, ‘reading the daily post’ !! or the morning Leader as I refer to it. Its easy to scoff and I quite often do, but the scupture is something that the whole county should be proud of!
