Cartel, Tower Hamlets: wonky

Cartel Security Surveillance Communications

“Cartel Security Surveillance Communications” burglar alarm, Tower Hamlets • I don’t know what this is all about. The logo’s a triangle with a chunk cut out that doesn’t look like anything except a wonky “V”, and the name of the company refers to a type of business arrangement that’s associated, in popular parlance, with illegal price fixing. Not that I’m suggested in any way that that’s what this firm gets up to; it probably just sounded good when they thought of it. • Spotted: Poyser Street, Tower Hamlets, London, E2, England, 2012 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Bethnal Green and Bow
