Denys Lasdun is the architect who constructed the amazing edifice which Antiny (bigger or smaller than?!) Gormley wishes to place his sculpture on a permanent basis judging by your collective inferance.
I wish to state that the architecture speaks on it's own and people are flesh as the Hayward is concrete.
I think it is fantastic that Antony Gromley has designed sculpture for the space which was created by Denys Lasdun but I am very dissapointed that his name was not mentioned at any time either by you Kirsty or your panel.

Best Regards

We leave the philistine safety to punch through to the heart of the cultural week. Who can crack the code to find the serial killer and would we want to? Like a sunday breakfast, the staggering normality taunts us who cannot see the join to the endless and affectionate horror.

Thinking differently about obsessive space we are desperate to know what is what and when in a context of new age ideas and imaginations. Smothered by the gas in the box we go in to go out. Is this a happier place? A place for puppies? A sumptuous angst that destabilises the hard core? what were we thinking?

I am still unsure of the specific crime for which Mr Browne was toppled from BP. Is homosexuality a crime? When is a white lie a major transgresion of truth? Soon there will be no leaders of any managerial caliber or intellect to guide colleges, companies, or countries if the Fourth Estate continues it's snitty path laden with violations of privacy.

Natalie Haynes is an excellent pannelist, Tony Pasrons quite good.

When are Churchwell and Hari coming back? they are an interesting duo, I believe they have done the show together three or four times now. Of course, the classic pair are Greer and Paulin, why do we see them so rarely now?
