Graffiti Puzzler

This photograph was taken not a hundred yards from my home. Was the person writing the graffiti dyslexic, or is this an example of just how far the standard of English has fallen — that your average vandal can’t spell the most basic of offensive words? What hope for society if the latter is the case?

    Goldsmiths college student Gordon McDermott, 24, of Hunsdon Road, New Cross, se London, who was accused of being CUT and sometimes MIZ, denied 14 charges and was cleared of any wrongdoing.

    Jurors heard CUT was pictured in Crack and Shine in 2009 holding a £100 bottle of Dom Perignon champagne and a spray can obscuring his face.

    Mr Lodge claimed McDermott, who insisted he was not CUT, had even signed his name at the bottom of his road.

    He was alleged to have been caught with a workman’s torch helmet after one incident and claimed it was for pot-holing.

    Police were also said to have found a paint-splattered champagne bottle at his home which he simply said was not the same one.
