This time last week we passed through Dover and I made the comment that Dover “could try harder” with its street art.

It seems I am in tune with the world’s most famous street artist, Banksy, because on the very next Sunday, he created a huge mural on exactly the wall I commented on, with a visual comment on Brexit; a workman chiselling one of the stars from the European Union’s flag.

Dover, England.
