Banners at football as art?
at 11:30 16 Apr 2017

Would you consider football banners to be a form of art?

If not, why not?

Is there a difference say, between nonsensical scribblings and the work of some easily distracted, though possibly talented graphic designers, when it comes to considering their role as art?

In as much as they all have something to say, be it rival teasing, or protest, or a sign of support or raising awareness for a cause etc.

Anyone else?

This is still a bit new to me as I'm always behind things.

But, although he's a bit over excited for me - like a modern Ben Elton - it's OK enough.

Fair enough or over the top?

They were masked-up, one wearing knuckle dusters, another carrying a knife.

Teenagers only, but intent was clearly there.

Friday night? Few beers? Normally I'd be thinking curry.

Maybe it's a Brexit thing.

Ill health possibly paid a large part in his stepping down.

There'll be mixed feelings no doubt on his death.

Chartism

Likes of Guthers and Unbelievablue maybe?

I wonder of one of you fine people could just give me a brief run down what exactly was 'in it' for the various classes?

I can see in the 6 main points of the Charter the reasoning for the middle classes wanting more power/say so; I suppose the vote would be an obvious point.

Better access to the political system itself? I.e. only the wealthiest could become an MP etc?

But the movement itself contained a right mixture of people from various backgrounds and much of the drive seemed to come from a want for more equality. Well that's understandable from the view of 'have nots' but why would the middle classes side with the poor? Much outrage because of the Poor Law amendment et al, not just from those who suffered because of it.

Was the simply a human element to it? The likes of Cobbett for example, just a jolly decent chap?

Basically, the push behind it seemed to have the working classes and poorer in general at heart, industry etc, but the 6 points of the charter itself appeared more to be directed towards the kind of goals the middle classes may have desire.

Advise s'il vous plait.

And other makers of chocolate selection boxes.

No one likes the bloody coffee ones. No one.

And I'm not convinced anybody would willingly swap a hazelnut for one of those horrible strawberry flavoured things either.
