Popping up across the internet this morning are stories of a new work believed to have been created by graffiti artist Banksy. Appearing on the wall of a Poundland shop, it features a small boy making Union Jack bunting on an old Singer sewing machine. Seeing as Poundland have recently been forced to launch an investigation after it was found that a 7 year old boy had been working in a sweatshop producing goods for their stores, its location is obviously no accident.
I heard a rumour that the bunting has since been stolen - which in itself would be something of a social commentary!
More photographs of Banksy's work are available on:
If you have a few minutes, take a look. You'll find plenty there to make you smile, and a lot more to make you think.
