"Rude Children" with kids showing the finger, facing out, or facing eachother.
How does one know whether they're Banksy or not?

The artist clearly intended it to be in our corner of Bermondsey and so keeping it here would be the best outcome. Seeing it moved elsewhere or sold commercially would be a crying shame. Well done and thank you to the owner, Joe Ozlala, for making the effort to hang onto our street art and getting the developers to incorporate it into their new design.
