Swanscome Handaxe Statue

Swanscome is of course home of the handaxe and the local council seem to have taken it to heart. Never even knew it existed till yesterday when I stumbled upon it.

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. cats look down on us but pigs treat us as equals.

Stupidity got us into this mess, why can't it get us out
