I wouldn't have classed Brunel as an artist though (unless you've not read paragraph 2)
I prefer not to think before I speak. I like being just as surprised as everyone else by what comes out of my mouth.

The criteria on the BofE website

"The visual arts is broadly defined and covers architects, artists, ceramicists, craftspeople, designers, fashion designers, filmmakers, photographers, printmakers, and sculptors. Their areas form part of our everyday lives, from the buildings around us to the artwork that inspires us, the clothes we wear and the objects we use."

Brunel is an engineer, designer, craftsman and his architectures are seen in the context of industry that affect everyday lives. He is included in the list if you read the pdf file of the candidates. Sure he is not a fine art or impressionist. The candidates is in the field of visual art, Brunel excels in it. There are novelists included too but they are not immediately considered as fine artists.

What should be on it? Some kind of laminate so our coke-head of a chancellor can avoid his inevitable downfall a little longer?

Terry Wogan? David Bowie? Or to be more realistic Stephen Hawkin.
