OPINION BY DAVID CAMERON
Graffiti costs the UK taxpayer millions of pounds a year to clean up at a time when the NHS is struggling to care for the relentless flood of sick and those who put themselves selfishly in harm’s way.
Much like those who were illegally trespassing on railway property not so long ago and subsequently killed by a train while vandalising in their effort to tag anything not nailed down.
Now Paisley has its very own thrill seeker who has taken their life in their own hands just to tag where no one has tagged before, right at the top of a Council house building side wall off of Causeyside.
This daredevil has managed to climb up the side of one George streets many flats, that has bricks sticking out the side of the building as part of its design. He or she has managed to leave their calling tag for all to see and for others to possibly mimic in the future.
So will this result in badly needed council money being diverted to George Street to grind down all those bricks that stick out the sides of buildings to prevent others trying their hand in the hope they, too, don’t fall to their death?
Plus how much will it cost the council to hire a cherry picker and cleanup crew to clear away this mess!
