Another fine example of how you hard earned is spent:ok:

Group Manager, Street Scene jobs, East London, c.£61,000 | Guardian Jobs (http://jobs.guardian.co.uk/job/834257/group-manager-street-scene)

Easy job, just think how much gun crime for example could be solved with a leylandii hedge

Sounds like a job created by some senior council hack for his idiot son in law,don't bother applying,the vacancy will have been filled even before the ad was printed.

Reminds me of when I lived in Paris.

On nearly all Metro platforms, there are a few electric/signalling cabinets at the far end.
Prime target for taggers, until somebody had the bright idea to paint all of them in some kind of simple (and inoffensive, visually) zebra pattern. Worked great, nobody bothered to tag, since any tag would have been illegible.

Think laterally, tag first... :ok:

Of course not all graffiti is bad if it is done tastefully.

This week’s edition of You Couldn’t Make It Up comes from Gloucestershire.
More than 2,000 people may have lost their jobs in the county recently, but the local council is still hiring.
It is looking for a ‘Recession Support Co-ordinator’ on £40,000 a year.

Says it all really.....
