Offensive grafitti

Today I asked Brighton and Hove City Council to remove grafitti on a suicide helpline sign on the flyover above Brighton Marina (a local attempted/completed suicide 'hotspot').

Sign: 'You are not alone'. Grafitti: 'Jump wiv a mate'.

When I described it to the Council worker on the phone, he said "Oh yeah, I've seen that... one."   So how come he hadn't reported it to his own team for immediate removal?

Another 'sign' that there's a helluva a long way to go to dismantle the stigma and misunderstanding surrounding suicidal behaviour.

Grrrr. Rant over, thanks.
