I Paid My Tax and…..(Part 94)

This 6ft high by 30ft long wall in Jubilee Park, Wadebridge, Cornwall, cost £3,000 was installed so that deliquents and drop-outs could vandalise it and practice their graffiti without committing criminal acts on local buildings.

A better way to harness their efforts must be possible, I’m sure. Maybe we could call them “Internment Camps”.

Anyway ahead of the formal opening on October 31 a pissed-off local resident got behind the security fence and painted this protest on it.

The wall was funded by money stolen from the doubtless unsuspecting taxpayers of Wadebridge Town Council, Wadebridge Town Forum and North Cornwall District Council.

It’s the single-braincell idea of lame-brained, moronic Sergeant Robin Moorcroft who has “vowed” to investigate the graffiti.

He said it is “ironic” because some of the cost was subsidised by stupid local businesses who supplied free materials and labour in exchange for publicity and, presumably, not being raided by the rozzers for employing illegal immigrants.

“The ironic thing is that the wall has been built thanks to the generosity of local people giving time and resources for free,” he grumbled.

“But it is now going to cost the taxpayer, as we will have to crime it, investigate it and paint over it.

Frankly, if the Councils wanted to spend this sort of money then they should spend it on local educashun. After all, if they’d done so a few years ago when grammar was still being taught in schools and Moorcroft was probably still in nappies he would have avoided looking like a tit by saying “to crime it”.
