Dave Prowse for the Colston Plinth

We the undersigned Dave Prowse. Brought up on the Southmead housing estate in Bristol. Yes, 'Darth Vader' - but he always said the work he was most proud of was going round the schools as the 'Green Cross Code Man' - working with kids, keeping them safe. What a top bloke. So, let's get him on the Colston plinth. A person who puts their community ahead of themselves is surely the type of role model we need. Flying in the face of all the trappings of the high-life, Dave worked hard at serving the nation's kids. And if the statue was half-Vader-half-GCCM - back to back - it would makes us smile. Not only for the oddity of having a Vader statue at the Harbourside (which could be a draw for fans from around the world) but to be reminded Vader was really a kind-hearted Bristolian! :)
