That notorious racist Banksy

The offending Banksy graffiti before the Council scrubbed it
What is it with Clacton Council (home of the future UKIP power base)?
"Nigel Brown, Tendring District Council’s communications manager, said staff had inspected the site after receiving a complaint and ‘agreed that it could be seen as offensive’. …

"The council scrubbed the mural – potentially worth thousands of pounds – off the wall today after receiving a complaint on Tuesday from a member of the public saying ‘offensive and racist remarks’ had been painted on the wall.

"Mr Brown added: ‘We would obviously welcome an appropriate Banksy original on any of our seafronts and would be delighted if he returned in the future.’"
Fat chance of that - and you've got to like the 'appropriate'.
"A spokesman for Banksy said he would not comment on the council’s actions."
I guess his point has been made.

From The Daily Mail via Steve Sailer. I rather think Mr Sailer has Banksy nailed.
