Get your chequebooks ready

Back in March I called for a statue of Adam Smith to be erected in Edinburgh.

One of the comments was from Eamonn Butler of the Adam Smith Institute who tells us of this plan to erect a statue of the great man. I was pleased to make a small contribution to the David Hume statue and, when the time comes, will make a larger one to the Smith fund. The Smith statue is to be created by Sandy Stoddart who also gave us the Hume statue in the Royal Mile as well as the one of US Founding Father John Witherspoon, which can be seen at Paisley and Princeton Universities.
