My thoughts on TRIDENT OR NHS #Scrabbleman

Update; Scrabble Man has seemingly confirmed the piece to be his. See comment below!

Original Post; Don’t get me wrong, I like it, but there’s just something about it that’s not right.

Maybe it’s an old one that the Scrabble Bomber has been holding back, that was made before perfecting the technique? Maybe it’s a copycat local with strong feelings against the government’s Trident Programme, and getting some local coverage, because they know people like me will blog about it anyway?

– The message is too direct, not cryptic/subtle/quoting anything
– All the others are better spaced, not hanging off the edge of the plaque
– The varnish colour looks wrong – Not dark enough, which leaves the tiles looking too light in colour
– The left edge has some seemingly illegible text, possibly from the mould lining used when it was made. None of the others have any possible traceable clues to their origin

Who knows!

For now, I’m calling it Scrabbleman 15. We’ll have to wait and see if Mr/Mrs Bomber denies the work being theirs!!
