Difficult to comment as it arouses so many strong feelings in both directions, however, wish they hadn't. Posted by costaexpress

I don’t know tsc. Way to go if you want to get bad publicity for a righteous cause. Or maybe they’re just twats. ryaner Posted by ryaner

It's a righteous cause, no doubt at all. But damaging ancient monuments isn't going to get it the right kind of publicity. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Sorry, I guess i wasn't clear. I was thinking of something more sinister, like if you wanted to get bad publicity for a cause you don't agree with, you would deliberately vandalise one of our ancient monuments with its logo. I guess I'm just that bit more paranoid than most these days. ryaner Posted by ryaner

Oh, that's a point (I misunderstood before, sorry). I suspect it's misplaced good intentions but you're right to be cynical.. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
