Choose Suffolk over the last months have been carrying out an open poll to allow people to vote for an image which is most iconic of the easterly county of Suffolk. The winning image was to be used to advertise the county as an attractive destination to visit.

An image of Suffolk resident Dani Filth from the county's most notorious band Cradle Of Filth turned out to be the winner, with a total number of 13,025 votes. A picture of an old swimming pool came second with a tiny 2,055 votes in comparison.

Choose Suffolk have unfortunately disregarded the support for the funny-looking man and have ignored the result in favour of a new short-list of images to choose from.

A spokesperson for the website apparently stated that the judges were "looking for icons which had a wider currency outside the borders of Suffolk", which apparently Cradle Of Filth don't have.

Still, you can vote for your favourite non-Filthy, Suffolky picture here.

Totally lame!

Now that's funny

Haha, so apparently Dani Filth is one of the reasons i would want to visit Suffolk??

Euh...yes, would you rather visit an old stone or a forgotten pool in Suffolk?
Elodie Artour - 05.01.2011 at 21:07  
Choosing Dani Filth as Suffolk's icon would have indeed been inappropriate. This whole situation is ridiculous, though.

LMFAO, this just made my day.

anyway, who the fu*k would be attracted to visit suffolk if they saw a picture of 'Sir Bobby Robson' pointing his finger at something????

I would expect the tourist rate to go up...
...the type of tourist, however, would be questionable.
The Shape 1973 - 05.01.2011 at 22:18  
I go to Suffolk quite a lot, it would be brilliant to have a big sign of Dani on the A14 saying "Welcome To Suffolk, Abandon Hope All Who Enter".

Having him opening a village fate, then sacrificing the prize winning cow or shagging the Miss Suffolk winner. Chasing the old ladies on their mobility scooters in a combine harvester whilst singing Gilded Cunt.

Emo type of tourists and homos i guess!


And you ruined the joke.
Nice going, douchebag.

This whole thing made me explode with laughter. What a goshdarn ridiculous situation.

It's still not as ridiculous as Dimmu Borgir touring Europe as support for Korn, though.
Sulac - 05.01.2011 at 23:32  
Black + nu =/= listenable combination. Granted, nu + anything =/= listenable combination. But, still... Wow...

The image of the Sutton Hoo dosen't seem that too bad, that's the only thing that I can see besides Dani that presumably "has a wider currency outside the borders of Suffolk", but this is the only slight serious matter I can take it in respect, because this is so beautifully lame that it's just funny for words.
worm_is_gloaming - 06.01.2011 at 00:37  
Choosing Dani Filth over the truly iconic Sutton Hoo Anglo-Saxon heritage site, which comes from Suffolk county? Grow the fuck up... And Sutton Hoo is metal enough, just ask Forefather and Winterfylleth;)

SUTTON HOO got my vote. Now that's a real reason for visiting Suffolk for a change.
Richard - 06.01.2011 at 03:25  
Ah! I'm from a town in Suffolk, and there was an article about Dani's nomination in The Mercury (a local newspaper) several weeks ago, with a brief interview with him.. I was wondering how he'd fare in the vote!

Incidentally, Suffolk was also the home of the legendary Misanthropy Records label, which is perhaps more 'true Black Metal' and stuff..!
FREEDOM FOREVER - 06.01.2011 at 03:27  
Unbelievable!!!!:what:
Yet I think it's an honour for Suffolk:banger2:

that is karma for Dimmu Burger only giving Enslaved 40 minutes of stage time... hopefully Korny will do the same to DB.

As if the bands have anything to do with that. Argh, what the hell...
Shadowcross - 06.01.2011 at 12:59  
What a joke.. What else from Suffolk could ever have as much currency in the world as Dani Filth?

Almost as bad as TIME magazine disregarding the winner of their person of the year Poll; Wikileak's Julian Assange.

yes. the headliners do dictate how much time they will want, and thus how much the other bands on the bill get.

@BitterCOld: Let's hope for it.

@Shadowcross: Damn media!

Wow, Dani is pretty ugly in that picture. Though, he is even uglier with his new short hair cut!
