A Statue for Anthony

Dublin has a statue of James Joyce.

Edinburgh has an entire monument to Walter Scott.

Cardiff even has an entire square dedicated to Roald Dahl.

But Manchester to date has not recognised its greatest author. Manchester City Council has launched a new consultation exercise on the future of statues and monuments in the city. You can see the questionnaire by clicking here.

There is an opportunity to propose new subjects for monuments. Perhaps you might consider filling it in and proposing that they rectify their egregious lack of an Anthony Burgess statue?
