File:Bansky one nation under cctv.jpg


Description Located in Central London. A group of gentlemen badgered the Royal Mail about construction work that needed doing on one of the walls. After many requests the Royal Mail eventually agreed to let these "builders" put up scaffolding and sort out whatever problem there was.

6 days later the scaffolding came down and 'one nation under CCTV' was all that remained. It can be seen from far off and many people are drawn to it without even realizing it's a Banksy.

Despite attempts to save it this piece is no longer there. The only difference the public support made was that it was painted over (in March 2009), as opposed to removed.
