Young larrikins influenced by hip-hop music and gangster movies from the US are spraying graffiti and turning Camberwell into a scene not far removed from “BOYZ n the HOOD.”
Displaying the artistic ability of a toddler putting their hands in a can of paint, the barely legible scrawlings are infuriating Camberwellians. No sooner are they are removed more goes up in an never ending tit-tat not dissimilar to the Israel/Palestine conflict.
The eyesore carnage is extending to random lamp posts, Camberwell train station and the alleyway between OPSM and Minimax. Middle-class mortgage holders are afraid that if this continues the tone of the area will be lowered and the value of their houses could soon be the same as SUNSHINE – A dystopian outpost where the inhabitants walk around bleary-eyed wondering where the fuck did it all go wrong.
If this happens frustrated 9-5ers believe the hours they spend toiling in boring jobs with comfortable salaries will have been in vain.
