    MP,

    Saw a few examples of KAH in and around certain areas of East Belfast which is where I know you live. That sounded more sinister than it was meant to:)

    no it’s a serious question i dont know what it mean’s im guessing it’s not nice. i assume it a variation on kia and kat the h being hun so is it safe for me to assume that its secterian graffiti from some catholic yobbo if im wrong correct and enlighten me please

  • Yes, Carl. The H is hun and most likely has been scribbled by a Catholic yobbo possibly from the Markets.

  • The councils should set up hotlines whereby graffiti could be reported and it should be cleaned up within 24 hours. New York subway showed what could be done with a zero tolerance policy. The stations and carriages are now spotless whereas the was almost no space not written over back in the 70s.
    The worst city I have seen in the last 20 years is Rome. Awful!

    thanks joe i agree with your suggestion about grafitti hotlines,
    sometimes it’s quite witty but thats rare. i wonder what the numbers are as regards people ending up in court for getting the spraycan out and why are they all such bad spellers

    “i assume it a variation on kia and kat the h being hun”

    Quite so Carl – nasty little terriotorial ‘scent-marking’ hobby for pre-pububescents. Now, as a foriegner, I always thought the last word in the (similarly ubiquitous) ‘FAP’ was “Peelers”…but I now find out it’s actually “Paramilitaries”. Saw this sprayed right across a bar in Ballysillan the other day. Is ‘FAP’ the new ‘UTH’ (“up the hoods”), then?
