Then we come across this.
Racist graffiti 01.jpg
This is on a stile right out in the countryside - away from any roads.
Yes it could be argued, it's only kids fooling around, but it's clearly copycat behaviour, inspired by recent events across the world. And if kids think they can do this and get away with it, won't adults too? Where will it stop?
So: what should we do? Report it?
My interpretations of this unsavoury graffiti are that is has been written by a silly ignorant juvenile, or more
worryingly by a person pertaining to be one, as in running with the hare and hunt with the hounds.
Graffiti is usually displayed in places for maximum publicity, urban walls /bridges etc, not beauty spots with SSSI certification.
Whoever wrote it appears to have no artistic talent and has no previous career as a graffiti artist.
The swastika is all wrong backwards even, I would think most serious nazi types would get that part correct.
Difficult to imagine hard core racist types flocking to ogle it as a masterpiece of far right propaganda.
It looks like it has been scribbled at 100mph, why? Surely this is quite an isolated spot most of the time.
Fake or genuine I would report it to the Police.
