Hi Daniel,

I found it interesting to view your journey to work and thought the overall
impression was a pleasant journey without being swamped by graffiti. The
richness of the colour 'glamourised' it on occasion. Most evident in this

Graffiti is a big problem in the UK, so much so that the politicians saw
votes in a campaign to clamp down on it and a few fine speeches were made on
how they were going to clean up our environment. I share JBs' dislike of
graffiti. I most definitely did not want to smile at this response on a bus
shelter that appeared a couple of days after our Tony lent his weight to the
campaign but I couldn't help myself:
