Broadcasting House nonce vandalised by anti-peado crew

at around 4pm today, a man put a ladder up against Broadcasting House, Langham Place, and took a hammer to Eric Gill's portland stone sculpture of Ariel and Prospero. police were there from early on but they let him absolutely cunt the feet, legs and willy of Ariel down to the pavement below.





Eric Gill, was of course, both an extremely talented and influential artist and designer, and a serial abuser of his daughters, as revealed in 1989 by biographer Fiona McCarthy who found references in his diary to him having sex with his daughters, and dog, and was confirmed by a surviving daughter at the time.

The BBC have always rejected any proposal about removing the statue, that was carved in-situ by Gill on the facade in 1931.

Quite obviously he's a bananas Tommy Robinson peaodo's truther, but also, good on him? The BBC has particularly fucking embarrassed itself with the Ghislaine Maxwell case and also fawning over Prince Andrew.

QuoteBut what of their brother, Gordian? The interview I carried out with him at St Mary Abbot's hospital in London in April 1986 was the most difficult I have ever done, since Gordian, who was brought from an infants' home to live with the Gills as an eight-month-old baby in 1917, had had a severe stroke. He was only partly mobile and he could not speak at all. He could, however, understand my questions and, after a few minutes, I became quite adept at gauging his reactions. As I wrote in my notes, he communicated in "little moaning noises, rising to a higher pitch and greater loudness when he got agitated". He became especially agitated, clenching his fists and screeching, at the mention of Gill.
(From an easily Googled Guardian article. Apologies for lack of link.)

My feelings about both Gill and his work have simplified a bit over time, I think, and not in his favour. Part of that - being narrow and selfish - is that increasingly preferring Jacob Epstein's work in a roughly similar line of aesthetics (and beyond) and he doesn't seem to have been nearly so unpleasant.

If a paedo statue came near my hammers I swear I'd do time

Why didn't he lob the cock off? It's the first thing I'd go for.

there is a whole thing about Lord Reith thinking Ariel's cock was too big and sending Gill back up there, not sure if it's true.

here's the video of it

he started with the feet first, took a bit of working up for the cock. but he knocked it off eventually.

Gill Sans Penis

But yeah I can't really disagree with the sentiments in the OP. I'd heard he was a nonce, hadn't realised it was his own daughters he'd abused. (not saying either is great obviously, just an added layer of grimness)

Has this statue ever featured in the Up The Arse thread? Because if not why not.

Sounds like Chris Kamara providing commentary on someone's foreplay technique.

Admittedly there are better mid-period Franz jams

He sounds like a cunt of a man.  He fucked his own dog (and children).

Someone should've hammered him.

Quite like the statue though.

Maybe this'll be the excuse the BBC need to remodel it into an image of Rose and Giovanni from Strictly Come Dancing. As with our Bristolian chum, it's one thing having art by a vile person in a dusty museum, but a wholly different thing having it in the street above the door of a public body.

Especially as one of the key plot points of The Tempest is that Prospero gives up all the black magic and lets his slaves and victims go free.

Nonced his own daughters, sisters and a dog! You've got to hand it to him, I mean you've got to, it's some top drawer paeding, and puts some of the diddlers our modern game to shame Clive.

He made a war memorial too. Wonder if Tommy's boys will go for that and instantly become woke terrorists.

Wrong building, wrong sculptor, but otherwise spot on!
