Laughing all the way to the Banksy…

There wasn’t much feedback on yesterday’s ‘blog, indeed it got no ‘likes’ which made it about as popular as a man who hates rugby union in Wales (by the way, if you’re French; just a quick one to say hard lines on losing all your matches in the Six Nations so far).

Apparently George Osborne would have got in touch with me to lodge an official complaint towards the ‘blog, but he was said to be struggling to spell ‘AAA’. In any event, he was also trying to go back and destroy every bit of videotape which contained footage of him harping on about how important it is to retain our AAA credit rating.

Anyhow, it’s time to move onto today’s topic, which is about a bank called Manny… sorry, that’s wrong… it’s about a man called Banksy.

He’s a street artist who puts graffiti on walls, but he does it really well so apparently that’s alright. Somehow, I can’t imagine a burglar would get off from going to prison on the basis that he did a bit of vacuuming and dusting before he nicked your television and laptop (which isn’t quite what people mean when they’ve been burgled and say they’ve been ‘cleaned out’).

Banky’s mural named ‘slave labour’ was taken down from its home next to a Poundland (talking about slave labour, is it true that they only pay their employees £1 an hour or something?) and it then appeared for sale at an auction house in Miami with an anticipated sale price of £450,000 – which would probably buy the seller around 450,000 items from the Poundland store…

Talking about money though, the artist in question would be the expert as I’m sure that I heard recently that he and his family were in such financial difficulties that the Government had to come in and bail the Banksy’s out…

Anyhow, I suppose it’s slightly amusing that the mural free for everyone to see of a child labourer making some union jack bunting and effectively poking fun at capitalism was then attempted to be sold at auction by a quick-thinking American trying to make an enormous profit with virtually no work.

I’s guess that the great appeal about Banksy and the thought-provoking undertones of his work is that his identity is totally unknown… and it’s a real shame that Piers Morgan hasn’t thought about taking a similar approach to life…
