TGG I'd definitely have seen it then, used to stay with grand parent sin Battersea a lot as a small kid mid to late 70s, it looks familiar.

Can't cut and paste from my phone but if you Google 'Morganite Carbon mural' there's a nice old black and white picture of it. It was there from 1976-78.

You had me worried there that I'd lost my long-term memory too, but I lived in Battersea in the early '70s.
Would expect most on here to get the full 15 [Link]

lurks - 2 years to paint, up for 9 months, then sneakily knocked down over-night in 1979 [Link]

One tat always made me chuckle was daubed on a pillar in Covent Garden in the 1970s - "Fighting for peace is like fucking for virginity".

Slow - that’s the one that sparked the graffiti thread. It’s been covered up with a message to the NHS.

Apparently “Peas” was a consistent tagger and had just written his/her name then later someone else add the “give _ a chance” bit
Must be something about Hampshire Bert.

Although to be fair I live 200 yards from the Hampshire Berkshire border.
TGG how late was that still in place cos I'm sure I remember that as a very small kid in the 70s. (I think I also remember there were a couple of railway bridges round the back roads that had something daubed on them in black paint that looked like like poles with heads on them - or did I imagine that?)

That's why I want them down, they've got away with it for far too long and I've been to Southend twice and neither occasion improved my view of the place or the people

Just popped out for the first time in four days (I think!) to get some milk and bread (and chocolate). There aren't many people around, but half of them that are are fucking ignorant cunts.

[Link] you've got to love the internet - I really wouldn't have thought that any record would survive from way back then.

Same Southend that have amassed 19 points so far this season?

(Though I do get your point.)
There is grafitti I see on a bridge on many away trips which reads GIVE PEAS A CHANCE, anyone know what that's about?

still think the ones to watch are Spain and Italy, we know they're the worst case scenarios and they seem to be what we can expect here as worst cases - I do think though statistically we're below their rates at the same stage.

Sadly if you tell people in this country good news the worst of them will be out again convinced it's all been overhyped
For any of you old Battersea Boys & Girls, how about the enormous mural on the side of the Morganite coal factory/plant/whatever by Battersea bridge? Enormous hippy-dippy shit that really brightened my journey to school on the 49 bus in the seventies. And then when it was boarded up as the factory was knocked down to build luxury riverside flats (yes, even back then), the boarding was covered with the message - in letters significantly bigger than me - "we want our mural back from Morgans the bastards"

my sub-juvenile brain cannot recollect whether the grammar & punctuation was accurate smiley
I think the fatality rate is about 10-14 days behind the positive test rate so if we see a jump in positive cases around now, that will be reflected in the fatality rate in 10-14 days time.

UK fatality rate has declined two days in a row.

Encouraging?
Being constantly in debt never stopped Southend

Although in the FM season I just finished it got very realistic as their creditors were after a winding up order
Considering none of the EPL clubs are relying on gate revenue to decide their future they could easily afford to play without crowds. Suspect its only a matter of time before someone says we're done as is for league 1 and maybe there's some kind of call for us/Tranmere to play off for last relegation.

Unless they void it all but promotion to championship is essentially triple your money so I don't think the top clubs will want that.
Can Bristol Rovers be deducted points for that? Not quite sure what qualifies as living beyond your means but that sounds like it ought to qualify!

My favourite ever graffiti was on a railway bridge on the A315 heading out towards Hounslow.. 'Pretty small, half a chicken, sure, what, I don't much' Disappeared about 10 years ago :(
