  • Correct me if I am wrong John but it has been largely demonstrated that Banksy copied most of his so-called "street art" from French street artist Blek le Rat. In addition he initiated fairly recently a disgraceful street art conflict with senior graff artist King Robbo.
    Therefore the question is "Should Banksy street art become the next listed cultural asset"? The reply is no due to an obvious lack of originality and constructive attitude from my perspective.

  • The answer is no because there are far more important things to be discussing than Bristol's tourism opportunities. It is articles like this that have created such a ridiculous hype surrounding the so-called 'Banksy effect' and turned him from a bloke who liked to paint walls into some kind of folk hero legend who has somehow done a great service to the city. Has he supported local causes? Has he helped sort out the city's social problems? No, the only people who have benefited are poncey art collectors and the Council who are selling him off as a tourist attraction. Find something worth writing about please.
