Irony in the UK

I mentioned an urban exploration site in a post last year. In that post I provided a link to a group of photos taken in the old Rover Longbridge manufacturing site by those who call themselves "urban explorers". They work their way into old, abandoned industrial or commercial buildings and photograph the remains - sometimes with a rather artistic slant.

I found this photo taken inside a a former bus repair facility located in a former military base. Whoever did this graffiti put a lot of thought into it.

If you can't make out the image, it has the logos of four formerly British marques (Bentley, Rolls Royce, MINI and Triumph) now owned by BMW and Volkswagen. On the red field, it reads "WHO" "WON" "THE" "WAR?"
