Restoring Rust In Politics


Save The Metal Man campaign group has launched its campaign to save the Metal Man in Rosses Point, Co Sligo, with the help of Westlife’s Shane Filan (pic five).

The group writes:

In any other county he would be a national monument but Rosses Point’s historic Metal Man is rusting away apparently unwanted, unpainted and certainly neglected by Sligo County Council.

    Surely this group of people could get their act together and whack some hammerite on the poor fella

    I suspect that it’s under the jurisdiction of the Commissioners of Irish Lights, not the council.

          Loop Head is for the connoisseur, not to mention Fastnet, if you have the cojones.

    They could organize a heavy metal live aid concert to save the metal man. They could invite Banksy to Sligo. They could make culture flourish.

    Caught a bolt of lightning, cursed the day he let it go
    Rusting man, rusting man
    Could’ve been something, rusting man…

    Maybe Pearl Jam could change a few lyrics like I cunningly did there and charity single it.

  5. Truth in the News

    Has it reached the stage that a couple of these people can’t afford a few tins of
    marine paint, wonder did Filans brother put in anything about it, in his local election
    manifesto, as he is running for Rea Nua in Sligo Town, it seems the peeling paint
    is about to expose his crown jewels
