So, following the fun of the last ‘Banksy’ in Glastonbury town, here’s supposedly another one. I know for a fact this wasn’t there last weekend, and have been informed it wasn’t there yesterday (Thursday) so seems it must have been done last night. It’s been done next to the previous genuine Banksy of a policeman searching a small girl (that’s now disappeared as reported here before)
See, hugely suspicious about this one too. Would Banksy, a long, long time Glastonbury festival attendee and supporter, really criticise Michael Eavis for booking Jay-Z? Especially given the real reason it’s not sold out is because of the continuous years of mud.
So, no, it’s not a Banksy.
According to the web, it’s done by a different person to the one who did the stadium, neither of whom are Banksy, and isn’t finished yet.
Hope to put up some photos of when it’s done, if it gets finished.

UPDATE: The Central Somerset Gazette has immediately called it as a Banksy (and turned off comments on the article too) . Bizarre.
