I think they should attach the perspex box, with whichever David is inhabiting it, to one of the barges permanently moored in the centre of the river opposite Potters Fields by a long rope so that it floats up and down with the tide...
Any landlubber can do the trick in a dry field that's not moving.
A million quid ?
The world's gone mad.
Instead of sitting in a small see-through box, I suggest he just hires City Hall
instead for 44 days, and we all go to squat in there with him for the required period and share the reward too..
If he really is getting this huge amount of money from these two organisations for going through with this nonsense, it points up something vaguely obscene and perverse about the way our society is going, unless of course the aim is all along to give the money to charity.
That's the only outcome that would make me happy.
If it is all being done for personal gain and a desire to get an audience for reality/celebrity tv, I think we should go along with very vocal protests to make the two sponsors feel ashamed at wasting money on trivialities, when there are lots of impoverished good charitable causes in London who could put a million quid to proper use for the benefit of society.
