It just looks like modern art to me!   What colour are the walls supposed to be and what colour is the (pet) mould?  Sorry, I'm no help. O.o

Quite. I didn't like it a first, but now it's growing on me.

Just wipe it down with some strong bleach.

A lad at work thinks it’s salt that’s being forced out of the plaster ie gypsum which they used years ago

I think that sounds possible and a lot better than mould!  We get that here in SW France - limed walls?

It would point to water geting into the bricks but not badly enough to start mould but. Enough to start the salt migrating away em I might scrape it off tomorrow and see if the wall paper comes off with it

Can I just add my disappointment here that this isn't a thread about a replacement for Grumpy Cat?

Well grumpy cat could turn into mouldy cat if left long enough or maggoty cat

I was hoping the crabby feline would be embarking on a new career proving key economic theories. 

I heard Diana Abbott had approached a sealife center about borrowing an octopus

Doesn't look like efflorescence to me.   Looks like mould.  (seen a lot of efflorescence, not so much mould).

If it's mould, I'd kill it where it stands.  Don't give the spores a chance to go walkabout.   Least not cos some of them walk into your lungs.  Kill it by spraying something on it.  Then wipe it when its dead, a day or two later.
