Sir your article SNJ 07/02/24 regarding the graffiti on the canal footpath is somewhat surprising when in a recent edition of your broad sheet, your eulogized reporting of a similar Art form is described as a mural, when daubed on the walls of a vacant property in the town.

I wonder if the owners of the said property regard this somewhat third-rate Banksy in the same light? Perhaps the Detritus of the artist and not the double standards is the clue.

For Outrage!
