    Just been told that today the Council removed the shirt and ribbons from Lady Godiva.

    Personally I am not happy about this as this, am I alone or do others think she should have been in a shirt for longer?

    Surely bigger things to worry about, a statue wearing a shirt is not going to bring the club back to the City.

    I don't think she is supposed to have anything on at all, let alone a Cov top. Unless can come to an agreement with the council for her to have it on maybe!!!!

    Bloody Hooligans:D

    Seriously though who were a shirt and ribbons hurting? What jobsworth/killjoy at the council ordered that to happen?

    Pathetic. :thumbdown:

    I bet that if it was left there for too long there would be some on here moaning about "council bias / intervention" at leaving it there and demanding it be removed!

    The council had to do it, think about the many, many tourists who expect to see a naked Godiva. God bless the council.

    Although...

    In two minds about this, don't really like the ribbons, think they look daft.

    But Godiva was a nice visible reminder we should have a football club.

    Ah, maybe it's just me being grumpy, but I don't want to see a football shirt on the Godiva statue either. Saturday as a temporary thing for the march is fair enough, but after that I don't see it as necessary or appropriate - imho.

    Can't see any problem.

    The statue was decorated, the point was made, now it's removed.

    Seems all very sensible to me.

    Agreed, I mean the whole point is that she doesn't wear any clothes. But then again... Those nasty ccfc hating council bastards!

    I think it is appropriate we were preserving the modesty of Coventrys most famous Lady:)
