    Yes, I agree. No one to blame. Will be reinstated.
    End of story really

    It's not about backing mcdonalds. It's about pointing out the stupidity of rushing to condemn them for something that's not their fault. If you want to have a pop at them for animal welfare, promoting obesity or damaging the climate, I'd be more than happy to join you .

    One good thing to come out of this is the obvious public support for the murals. Hopefully it leads to more street art around the city.

    Decent gesture from mcdonalds to give the space back.
    Im sure the politicians in question will use it as a political point to claim that they were responsible for the reversal!

    It shouldn’t have been beyond the local McDonalds management to bring the fact that they were going to be scoring a PR own goal by going ahead with it.

    I bet the agency was using another subcontractor to prep the sites, someone else to put the advert up, all that McD's had done was to pay for X amount of hundred advertising spaces, they just couldn't know

    as for the local McD's management knowing, most of the mcD's are franchises ( who might be owned by someone anywhere in the world, my local ones are owned by someone who has a few homes around the world, one is a massive estate in South Africa ) I am pretty sure he wouldn't know about the mural and I wouldn't even think they would know about the advertising spaces anyway

    McD's are now paying for the space for the Mural to be repainted, which is the right thing to do and must be applauded

    And its transpired that the original artist who painted the mural is part of the team over painting it, they cleary weren't that bothered abut it or they'd have stopped it before it became a problem! Sounds like a manufactured situation to create a news story tbh.

    The original artist isn't over painting it, he's re-painting the original piece and I doubt he'd have been over the moon to see his work rollered over but that's part of the risk for all street artists. He'll get paid by McDonalds I suspect which won't be unwelcome. If it is a manufactured story, then the only people gaining anything out of this will be McDonalds themselves.

    I'd like to see lottey funding for these kinds of projects and for Cardiff Council to prioritise and help preserve them. Just remember our own club didn't support this (they were asked to) otherwise they'd have been stakeholders and would have been in the loop.

    After recent events at Bristol, our history that follows us around like a bad smell, and our awful season, we need all the PR help we can get.

    im sure in the original bbc report they said the site of the murial [321] was rented by the artiste , so its just a billboard.

    So you’re saying an individual McDonalds has no one in charge on the premises and they’re ordered about by faceless owners from other parts of the world who don’t know the first thing abiut individual stores? There has to be some sort of chain of command in every McDonalde and those in charge in the area should have been able to point out to someone that they were committing a big PR gaffe

    McDonalds is a franchise business.
