The Sticker Lady, best known for plastering circular labels printed with street humour captions at road crossings, also infringed upon our own variant of graffiti laws. But one suspects what prompted the Land Transport Authority to make a police report was not her creative attempt to push the boundaries of art in our backyard.
The police spokesman who responded to press queries claimed they "carried out intensive inquiries and leg work" and diverted "substantial resources to identify the suspect involved". Presumably more attention than was allocated to the subject of stolen confidential minutes pilfered from an alternate political party's premises, and conveniently leaked to the main stream media. With an eye on the year end bonuses, he added for effect, "This is on top of the considerable time, effort and cost to clean up the roads and affected areas." Really, how difficult is it to peel off a sticker from a lamp post, or hose down a road which is usually flooded after the torrential rains we have been experiencing recently?
