How the Micro can effect your view of the Macro


I already used the photo to yer left for a post on 6th March. It was taken in the area where I live. Hadn’t seen any NF graffiti for years, it was quite popular in the late 70’s early 80’s (during the time of political and economic crisis in Britain) and appeared on walls all over the place. When I first saw this recent piece, I wasn’t too surprised or shocked, after all in last years local council elections there was a BNP candidate standing for election in my ward. (click on the labels tag at the bottom of this post to read about that) My initial reaction to the graffiti was to ring up the council and get it’s crack team of ’Graffiti Busters’ to come and remove it. Then I thought I wonder what would happen if I did nothing about it? So for a bit of an ‘experiment’ that’s exactly what I did; nothing. I did think of getting a spray can and writing SCUM next to it, but the law of sod made me think I’d probably get caught, so I bottled it. The purpose of ‘the experiment’ was to see how long the graffiti would remain on the wall. It has now been two weeks since it first appeared, which lead me to the following conclusions:
a) No one else gives a shit or is aware of what NF stands for.
b) My neighbourhood is full of Racist sympathisers
c) The council are not doing their job properly.
Yesterday was 20th March, two weeks since I’d first photographed the graffiti. I ended my experiment as I was getting pissed off seeing it on the wall every time I went out for a walk with my dog. I rang the Councils Environmental Services and reported it. While I was on the phone I asked them If it had been reported before, they said that it had. I asked when and was told 14th March. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions. I will be going along to the next Local residents Association meeting to raise my concerns, could be interesting, cos I've been to a couple before and they seem to be mainly made up of people who like and want to be given power, but don't want to listen to anything that doesn't fit into their own narrow view point, they'd be a right bunch of little Hitlers if given the chance.

‘It was quite popular in the late 70’s early 80’s……‘
Well maybe not ‘popular’, but certainly commonplace.

Yes, it’s a strange one, this. Wonder who owns/lives in the flat? Has the occupier sprayed it themselves as the graffiti equivalent of flying a George Cross flag in their garden?
Or has it been done as an attack on a non white occupier? If it’s the latter. Wonder why they haven’t removed it themselves.

Do you work for the National Risk Register Team Wiff? or are you just trying to scare Nuzz. The National Front are nothing more than a bunch of cowards and represent everything that is shit with the U.K. They can all fuck off and hide behind their flag be it a union jack or a swastika ....WANKERS!

'popular' to some idiots. Interesting thoughts there anon. Cheers for the support Marky, but I think wiff has my best interests at heart. It's a shame I deleated the 2 threats that were made to me on those old posts about the BNP,cos yeah I suppose I should watch my back, can I register my risk with anyone? Nice one Bloater999 yeah they aint like the Jehovas Witnesses, who're always up for a chat, and anon#2 thats because they are, just look at Nicky Crane and Ian Stewart both as gay as George Michael and Freddy Mercury. Thanks for yer time good people.

I am not trying to scare Nuzz at all. It is because that organisations like the NF and BNP are cowards that Nuzz should be careful how he goes. I know from experience that organisations such as these are more likely to make use of their jackboots when challenged. After fighting fascist organisations from when the NF had prominence in the 70's through to the now rising prominence of the BNP today I think that my concerns are justified. All power to Nuzz but I know how these bastards work.

Nuzz - Thanks for the excellent blog which I've recently discovered. Regarding your comment: "just look at Nicky Crane and Ian Stewart both as gay as George Michael and Freddy Mercury" - the Crane angle is well-documented, but where does the info. on I. Stuart come from? It sounds like propaganda to me (I'm not suggesting your own propaganda, you understand) but I don't mind being proved wrong!

Keep up the great work...

Hey wiff my comment was only meant as a cheap tongue in cheek shot at the current climate of scare mongering and not at you good self, it was obvious your caution was genuine and heartfelt and i agree whole heartedly with your view.

Cheers once again for yer support, and yer right wiff, my girlfriend had a swastika carved into her car due to a local nazi being asked by the local anti fascist action group to leave a Social Distortion gig I promoted, I didn't even know both parties were there. Rest assured any probs will be mentioned in posts on here, hopefully it wont come to that.

Ref. my earlier post - I see there's no word yet on the source of that Ian Stuart information (whatever the truth may be)...

Nuzz Prowlin' Wolf said...

I'm sure that I read it somewhere Yenshee, I have been looking to find the source, but as such I can't, so maybe I've fallen for someone's propaganda.

Stuarts sexuality is referred to in Stewart Home’s book 'Cranked Up Really High'. Page’s 101/102 for anyone who has it.

To the first Anon post: why is flying the Georges Flag a symbol of the NF? except that they have tried to steal it, its still our countrys flag and there is nothing wrong with flying it anywhere! sorry but that bit bugged me!!

NF = No Fun
No Freedom
No Future

.. as seen on a wall between Euston and Kings Cross in the Seventies

Was Ian Stuart gay? Crikey, there's a thought. How would that have gone down with the 3rd Reich?

I'm not gay, I'm a nazi said...

Found this, thought you might like to read it, not sure what to make of it

There's even mention of Tony Wakeford out of Crisis having Nazi connatations, fuck me I like them as well

Hmmm... Seeing as I work for the outfit involved I thought I'd dig up the truth of the matter and here 'tis or it's what I've been told by the 'graffitti busters' anyway.

Fact 1. The 'GB' got their works order to clean it on the 13th or 14th of March (they can't remember exactly).

Fact 2. The authorisation to do the job was not included. This is needed as the graffitti might be on a private house as opposed to a council house and council operatives have no right to clean a private house, that has to be done by the homeowner.

Fact 3. After returning it for authorisation they then had to wait until last week for it to be approved hence the delay in cleaning it.

It would appear that the person who took the original complaint in the council's offices before The NPW called it in, did not bother (useless twat) to access the database and find out if the property was privately owned and this resulted in the aforementioned delay of clearing the offending item.

As an employee of aforesaid council who doesn't work for either graffitti busters or in the offices I just thought you might like to know that there was no conspiracy, just total fucking incompetence (No change there, then) by our wonderful office staff.

Take care Dude.
