BANKSY OFFERS FREE PRINT TO PEOPLE WHO VOTE AGAINST THE CONSERVATIVES

Infamous UK street artist Banksy has never been shy to share his political statements on walls worldwide - or indeed exclusive auction houses - but now he's offering free prints as a ‘gift’ if you vote against the Tories. 

If you're registered to vote in one of six Bristol-located constituencies (the region Banksy hails from) then all you have to do is send in an image of your ballot paper, showing you voted for anyone other than the Tories, and a complimentary print will be sent to you. 
 
The website publicising the offer is accompanied with a statement explaining that the artist isn't intending to influence people's voting choices- but there have been concerns raised that the artist's gesture could count as bribery. 
 
Banksy could now face a police probe; I’m sure a bit of light probing from the Metropolitan Police is something the artist is all too accustomed to. However, this influx of new material could seriously harm the high prices his work auctions for; will someone stop him before it's too late?!

In highly relevant news, this recent film tackles the complicated business of selling the artist's work:
