Hpc Graffiti ...

Recommended Posts

Was out today in Southport (transfering my ISA), and spotted the following graffiti tagged on the wall opposite several of the Banks in London street (a street than seems to be just Banks). Me and the missus enjoyed it's words (she is bear), and several others stopped to read it once I started with the phonecam.

So so tempted to add some text and a link or two :ph34r:

I present 'you're been ******ed!' 08

Wow. That's practically an essay. Which street is that on?

Very funny. Bet it took ages to do.

I doubt that many people have that much time to read it all on their way to work.

Why don't they just put up a short catchy www link to a website that explains it.

e.g. http://www.yourbankkillspuppies.com/

Then put the same text on page.

The green ink could be significant. Back in the 1930s while the fascists and communists battled for the hearts of the working class on the streets, a third and largely now consigned to the footnotes of history, correctly identified the cause of people's woes.

That was the Social Credit party, which grew out of a back-to-nature offshoot of scouting called the Kibbo Kift that fused native american rituals with olde englishe traditions and avant garde artistic experimentation. Iconclastic leader John Hargrave wondered why so many people were enslaved to their jobs when emerging mass production and technologies should mean they had more leisure time than ever and found the answer in the problem of debt money.

When the Kibbo Kift shifted from being a middle class woodcraft group to a political movement they would hurl GREEN BRICKs through banks' windows and when the decided to disband a green-robed archer fired a GREEN arrow into the door of Number 10.

Although social credit has all but faded by the 1950s the ideas seeped into much of the economic thinking of the UK ecology Party, which later became the green party. While the Green party is now dominated by dreary marxists many still keep money reform ideas alive.

I always wondered if anyone would ever try to adopt the frankly dead-cool iconography of the Kibbo Kift for anti-banking activism.

Bet the purple rinse brigade were disgusted with that!!! I know southport well, was this across the road from Lord Street perchance, just between woolies and sainsburys? They really are delluded up there, had a chat with a couple of the locals, just because a poxy hotel is being built and liverpool is the "capital of culture" (My ****, capital of culture just as the recession starts to hit bad!) they all SERIOUSLY expect house prices to double. Then again, thats why I had to move away... Too few brains spread out amongst the masses! (They all think they are posh scousers too, apart from the fact waitrose closed down because no-one could afford it!!! It opened up instead in Formby where all the footie players lived!)

it maybe a simple act of direct action but if we all follow the same lead then other will follow.

lets call it the the peoples media cus the mass media is simply not doing it's job and has become so corrupt that it's part of the problom and not part of the solution.

Interesting. One of the things you notice on the continent is that the graffitti is highly political (as far as I can tell from my knowledge of the languages). In this country all you get is illiterate scrawls (tagging) or stuff like 'Baz luvs Shaz'.

I haven't seen political graffitti in this country since the poll tax days.

In Woking I've seen the phrase "Anarchist Federation" as a signoff in grafiti. I really want to know if the irony is deliberate.
