The British seem to put fences around everything. And they don't just put up cute little picket fences to divide property – they put up 10' tall iron fences/walls with razor wire/spikes at the top. As a Canadian used to wide open spaces, public parks and people's lawns butting up against each other, this strikes me as unnecessary and odd.
As I was walking home the other day, I realized I'm not the only one when I noticed this piece of street art. It made me laugh out loud.
