  1. One wonders why the Jackson family haven’t sued the arse off Banksy yet. He produced a picture of Michael Jackson as the “big, bad wolf” attempting to lure little children in to his lare with sweeties. The painting is nothing short of libel. Michael Jackson was a genius and without doubt one of the greatest artists of all time. Banksy is nothing but a cruel bully who likes to get his kicks out of denigrating others. It is because of people like him that Michael Jackson met an untimely death. I for one shall be contacting the Jackson family to advise them to sue him for every penny he has. And ask yourself this? If Banksy is such a great artist why are the only people he can get commissions from the very people he purports to despise, namely those in the business of creating manafactured music and perpetuating the nastiness that is vanity, namely Simon Cowell and Kate Moss? The likes of the greats such as Bob Dylan clearly aren’t banging at his door desperate to get him to do work for them. People say that his work reflects his ideals . What ideals? He gave the Labour Party a donation to reduce his tax bill. That ain’t anti-establishment. And it certainly doesn’t make him on the side of the oppressed. In fact it makes him firmly on the side of the oppressors. I reckon the reason he’s such a sell out and the reason he has developed a startling desire to acquire wealth is due to the fact that he is a bit of a minger. No woman would have him if he were poor. Oh Banksy, you fool, didn’t the Beatles teach you anything. In the fine words of the Beatles the saying goes: “You can’t buy love”. History will judge him, as history will judge Tony Blair.
