Here’s a REAL Banksy painting about UKIP

Vox Political is indebted to a commenter (who will remain nameless) who wrote in after this blog published the modified Banksy picture commenting on UKIP.

The photograph was quickly revealed to be a Photoshopped version of ‘Lovesick’, in which hearts were issuing from the lady’s mouth. This Writer remains of the belief that the artist might not object to his work being adapted to present a satirical message.

But never mind that. Here is the real thing:


According to our source, Banksy painted this in Clacton to coincide with the Carswell defection election last year.

It is worth pointing out that, shortly after receiving this image – and in response to the previous article, this blog received the following comment from a UKIP supporter: “All the other parties insist on handing the country my ancestors fought and died for to a bunch of sponging foreigners.”

They prove Banksy’s point for him.

  1. A UKIP supporter: “All the other parties insist on handing the country my ancestors fought and died for to a bunch of sponging foreigners.” If he’s a Anglo-Saxon he should then go back home, to wherever it was. I’m of mixed Welsh/Scottish ancestry (in other words a Celt) so I’m descended from one of the original inhabitants of the British Isles. Go home Kippers.

    One wonders when the kipper fraternity will turn their ire on the german ‘spongers’ in Buck House

    Or are they too preoccupied bending their knee to them?

    Actually if you are a celt you can go home to portugal, so don’t come with your bigoted views here. I believe that the queen was born in Britain as was her father and mother, you really are scraping the barrel for comments aren’t you.

      Celts didn’t come from Portugal originally. If you go back far enough with this, then you’d empty these islands altogether.
