Graffiti of the Day

Alright, alright, I know I said I would be back yesterday but I got sidetracked with something that is as yet unfinished, however, I'm back now. So, to kick off with a just a small snippet from the graffiti board in parliament aka Early Day motions, we have this little waste of money.
That this House records its congratulations to Ryan Giggs on the 20th anniversary of his debut for Manchester United on 2 March 1991; is aware that throughout his illustrious career he has developed a deserved reputation for sportsmanship and fair play; recognises that his skills have been admired throughout the world; that 20 years on he is now the country's most decorated player, and that he is widely seen as a role model for team mates and young footballers everywhere; thanks him for his contribution to the national game for both his club and his country, Wales; and wishes him all the very best for his future.
I prefer to call this the "spot the Manchester United fans and/or the Welshman" EDM.

Whilst we're on the subject of graffiti, I was amused by the last words in this little treasure.

That this House notes the celebrations of Cornwall's patron saint, St Piran, on 5 March each year are growing in scope, support and significance; believes that this is a valuable opportunity for the people of Cornwall to celebrate their unique heritage, language, culture and aspirations; recognises that those who support patron saints' days in other regions and nations in the United Kingdom are also seeking official acknowledgement; welcomes the fact that several town and parish councils have already made the day a staff holiday; and calls on the Government to make St Piran's Day a public holiday in Cornwall.
No doubt the people of Devon who drive to work in Cornwall will be well chuffed if such a ludicrous idea of county-based public holidays came about.
