Bonfire 'Art' Rejected

This monstrosity is Theresa Smith's design for a public art installation thingy to commemorate Guildford's bonfire society. The proposed 16ft (5m) steel sculpture was supposed to represent a chair in flames. Guildford councillors had the sense to reject the idea on the grounds that it might prompt crime and disorder (title link). To me it looks like a throwback to the bad old days when witches were burned alive. Good decision, Guildford councillors.
