British Society’s Integrity Called Further Into Question by Public Ambivalence Toward Obscene Act

All the girls had told Ethel that her 80th birthday party at Trafalgar Square would be one she'd never forget...they were right.

All the girls had told Ethel that her 80th birthday party at Trafalgar Square would be one she'd never forget...they were right.

British society’s already tarnished reputation and long-standing association with low morality, suspect taste and poor ethics was further endorsed today, with the news that a lurid act in one of London’s most popular tourist locations drew only one complaint.

Justin Holwell, 24, from Loughborough stood naked for a full hour on Trafalgar Square’s Fourth Plinth on Sunday, without, seemingly, anyone giving one at all.

During this time it is estimated that several hundreds of people, including droves of Londoners and tourists, passed the plinth – many of whom actually stopped to take a picture of Mr. Holwell using a digital camera or camera phone.

However, despite this, only one complaint was received from the public, hammering yet another nail in British society’s already air-tight coffin.

Mark Williams-Thomas and his wife and children were the only ones to pipe up at all through the duration of Holwell’s indecent display, insisting that they were “annoyed and upset.” Although, let’s be honest, unless they were massive squares, the kids probably found it quite funny, so they don’t really count.

Meanwhile, Ethel Barnes, 80, a pensioner from Southwark, said, “I could see his winky,” presumably failing entirely to see that, far from helping matters, if anything, she was making the whole situation much, much worse.
