Banksy just announced a brand new version of his iconic “Girl With Balloon” image that will be released free of charge as a “UK Election Souvenir Special”.

On 9th of June 2017, if you are a UK registered voter in Bristol North West, Bristol West, North Somerset, Thornbury, Kingswood or Filton constituencies you are in for a special gift from Banksy. Simply send him a photo of your ballot paper from polling day showing that you voted against the Conservative incumbent and the print will be mailed to you.

Lawyer’s note: 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.

UPDATE May 6th: Banksy had to recall the entire offer which was announced last night via his Instagram

I have been warned by the Electoral Comission that the free print offer will invalidate the election result. So I regret to announce this ill-conceived and legally dubious proomotion has now been cancelled.
