Today I went to buy a new bathroom carpet from Hessle Road, and, as the sun was shining, decided I would have a cider on the table outside the pub to enhance my enjoyment of the sun. Hessle Road is not an upmarket shopping area and two of the pub windows were boarded up and some wag had drawn a smiley face on one of them and written 'Shameless' on one of them (referring to a TV series about an underclass family). As I was sitting there with Scamp a bloke walked past, pointed at the windows and said 'Was that you?'. When I answered in the negative he said 'Well, quick smash one then, and then run away'.
A serious point can be made about inner cities and how some people try to preserve order (like the picture of the garden behind the fortress fence) in the midst of, if not chaos, then a certain amount of unruly behaviour.
