THE week after the air show I was appalled to see someone with a yellow paint spray had scrawled graffiti on the paving of the Middle Parade between the pier and the Wish Tower.
I wondered how long it would take the council to remove this eyesore which is an embarrassment to locals and tourists alike. I also wondered what the cost of removal would be to the community.
It is still there. I have recently learnt, however, that it was the council itself that was responsible for this defacement!
Apparently paint was put there as markings for stalls at the air show.
Presumably it will now remain until next year as a sad indictment of commercialism at the expense of the environment.
