Creative Vandalism!


The city council of Glasgow has escalated a fight against illegal show flyers in a most mischievous way. Paid city workers are placing large stickers reading "Cancelled" across posters hung in prohibited areas.
An article in the Evening Times quotes a council source who commented, "We can be a complete pain in the neck to the people doing this because the money and time they spend is completely wasted. And there's no point getting in a designer to produce a fancy poster when it will soon be a mess that doesn't tell anyone anything."

Seems to me a lot of fly posters are a mess than fail to tell people anything anyway...
