Post-it note flower war deemed 'most middle-class argument'
A post-it note war over the ownership of flowers on a public pavement has been deemed the "most middle-class argument ever".
The handwritten note trail nailed to a tree on Dalyell Road in Brixton began when one person wrote "don't pick my flowers" above a lupin.
An unknown person then replied with: "In an area massively affected by gentrification, it's sad to see people claiming ownership of even the flowers."
The squabble went viral after local resident Rachel Thompson posted a picture of the notes on Twitter, racking up more than 16,000 likes and hundreds of comments.
