Here’s how Banksy is trying to influence the British elections

Well, only recently the world has learnt that British graffiti master and artist Banksy is unquestionably against England’s Conservative party and here’s how. The anonymous artist posted about a limited-edition artwork which can be availed by those voting against the Conservative party.

Banksy has programmed the artwork release for 9th June and assures the artwork to voters on a complimentary basis. If you’re a Banksy buff, all you really have to do is send him a photo of your ballot paper showing that they voted against the Tories and that limited-edition work is yours.

Aiming for voters in the Bristol North West, Bristol West, North Somerset, Thornbury, Kingswood and Filton constituencies, Banksy says, ‘Simply send in a photo of your ballot paper from polling day showing you voted against the Conservative incumbent and this complimentary gift will be mailed to you.’

Undoubtedly so, this post has garnered decent attention from the Electoral Commission, cautioning that bribery is a crime where someone ‘directly or indirectly’ gives any money to induce a vote.

On the hand, in a ‘lawyer’s note’ disclaimer, Banksy adds: ‘This print is a souvenir piece of campaign material, it is in no way meant to influence the choices of the electorate, has no monetary value, is for amusement purposes only and is strictly not for re-sale. Terms and conditions to follow, postage not included.’

Well, we’re certainly eager for the 9th of June to witness this intriguing set of events.
