We live in interesting times.
One week on from what someone like Roosevelt might have described as “the Referendum that will go down in infamy”, and the graffiti artists who have been daubing the hoarding around what was once Taberner House, the council office tower, have got to work with a new message.
Inside Croydon is grateful to our loyal reader for bringing this to our attention.
We wonder whether the artist intends to add names to the hoardings of all the other politicians, national and local, who lie. Will there be enough space around the hoardings to accommodate them all?
Meanwhile, more mundanely, Grey Label, the promotions agency which for some inexplicable reason continues to enjoy lots of generous commissions utilising public money from our council for “organising” events, continues to fail to cover itself in glory, this time with some promotional activity for last week’s Croydon Food “Festival”.
Yep. That’s how someone being paid through public funds put the poster up. Presumably while they were awake.
Our loyal reader confirms that the plastic ties which secured the Food “Festival” banner to the railings have not been tampered with. So they really did put that there deliberately. Perhaps it, too, is intended as some sort of art “installation”?
#ThatIsSoCroydon, as the council’s £600,000 per year budget press office once said.
