Oops, there goes some art

It was in the paper yesterday that a bit of stencil art by Banksy got painted over by council workers ordered to clean up a street. A quick search shows that this has happened before.

For me the surprising part was the history of politicians (mainly from the council and local government) appearing to be so pro-graffiti (they like to call it street art when it might be worth something). Then it becomes obvious that they’re just playing up having a piece of work by Banksy here to work a younger audience – normal hypocritical politicking.
