Banksy 'Keep Britain Tidy'  

Banksy - Keep Britain Tidy - Shanklin, Isle of Wight, in a car par park at the foot of the Cliff lift.

Keep Britain Tidy offered their opinion on the piece. 

Phil Barton, Keep Britain Tidy’s chief executive, said:  “The more common ‘tagging’ is seen as offensive, blighting the environment and leading to an increased fear of crime but the more community-based art is seen in a different light.

“The problem is the so-called ‘nice’ graffiti – like Banksy’s Keep Britain Tidy image – accounts for less than one per cent of all graffiti and, of course, depending on where it is may cause significant problems for the property owner.

“Many councils now look for innovative ways of dealing with grafitti (sic) and we support this. It can be a powerful way to engage with children and young people in their local communities.”

Whatever, I don't think Banksy is going to sign up to their anti graffiti campaign anytime soon.

Status: painted over in white to match the white painted burnt out old toilet block it had been painted on.
