Underneath Waterloo Station in Leake Street, South London, hidden from the public view, there stands a body of art by the people inspired by the artist Banksy that tells the story of our nation.
From the branding of religion to the 10p tax fiasco, from the lamented passing of celebrity Boris Johnson to the coffin of politics, through to the loss of innocence that is the War on Terror.
Throughout, these stencils illustrate a conscience in motion too elegant to be recognised by the government and too wily to be understood by the media. The nation we have become leaves its forensic fingerprint on the walls of this tunnel at the hands of Banksy and the people and stands to humiliate all who deny the truth of it.
Leake Street, London. 13th June 2008.
