Banksy Artwork Depicting MPs As Chimps


I do love a laugh when it comes to members of parliament and what they get up to but when Banksy’s artwork was put on show; it just made me smile all day. There was Banksy’s artwork representing politicians in the House of Commons as chimpanzees, and then I thought, hold on a moment, somethings wrong here, not one of them is sleeping on the job.

The graffiti artist’s work, named Devolved Parliament, was been put on show at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery in time for the original deadline of 29 March.

Devolved Parliament was purchased by an unnamed collector, who had loaned it to the museum to mark a decade since its unveiling.

It’s exceptional art, and that great art is a representation of society. It puts a mirror to society and presents the mood and landscape, and that’s what Banksy does, he points that mirror back at society, and to be fair, it would be kind of refreshing to have apes in parliament striving to improve society, instead of the self-serving individuals we have at the moment, and no matter what we feel about Brexit, this sums parliament up eloquently.

Sadly, there’s not enough poo being thrown about in the painting though, but then again, apes are far more intelligent than politicians who reside in parliament.

Maybe we could do a swap with London zoo and put Clown, Rees- Mogg and Gove in the endangered species enclosure, and then we can have the apes in parliament instead, at least then they’ll make well-informed choices for their whole group and not merely parts of it.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
