The Paris School of Architecture has launched a competition to build a monument depicting Brexit...

"It suggests the ideal place for the monument would be at the entrance of the Channel Tunnel in Folkestone or the French side at Coquelles – or at both.

Entrants can also submit designs for an architectural structure or piece of public art with a €20,000 (£17,500) grant to build it.

The prize is subject to entrants gaining permission from landowners and the local planning authority – Shepway District Council – but could be built at the school in Paris if they cannot get permission.

The monument brief explains the designs are intended to discuss “the themes of lost European co-operation”.

A statement from the school, which takes its first students next September, said: “The competition site is, in some sense, at the discretion of the entrants.

“The constraints to this are that the monument, or monuments should be visible by passengers travelling on the Eurostar service between the UK and Continental Europe and should be positioned near to the entrances to either or both tunnels."


Folkestone Channel Tunnel entrance chosen as possible site for Brexit monument

What would you suggest they build at the entrance to the Channel Tunnel to depict Brexit?

The Irish government should challenge the location if the Channel Tunnel is chosen as that would give the mistaken belief that the EU ends there when we are still further West.

A statue of Leo sat on his throne, feet surrounded by snakes and the Union Fleg wrapped across shoulders

They should base it on our commemorations of 1916 .

Getting Freedom from an Empire should be celebrated and coincidently it was 100 years after the 26 counties escaped from the British Empire .

The managed to get out of the Eu Empire without violence luckily . Becoming a Free Independent Sovereign Country is well worth celebrating .

The Battle Bus of course! With suitably heroic busts on Farage and Boris in the front windows.

It seems like a very petty exercise.

On the English side a colonel Blimp like figure shooting himself in the foot and on the French side an EU soldier rushing to him with more bullets.

What better way to symbolise Brexit than a self-absorbed taxpayer funded institution, spending yet more taxes on a pointless folly. All wrapped up in a thick oozing layer of grossly misplaced arrogance and smugness.


Yep, that is one of the reasons Britons voted to leave.

An EU soldier from the EU army you mean?
