Purple seagulls the Fanit youf hypotheses

There is a bit of an odd discussion here as to whether vanadium in it’s + 2 oxidation stage hydrolytic acid causing it to disassociate, the fume cupboard venting onto Chatham Houses roof was what caused the seagulls there to turn purple.

I am coming down on the side that potassium permanganate must have been involved, there is also an iodine school of thought here.

Anyone got any ideas?

Paint is much easier, iodine comes out sort of brown and the other stuff that I cant spell sounds sort of poncy Paint is the easiest option administered via spray can by afore mentioned Fanit youf's
