Tendering District Council in Clacton on Sea demonstrating to the rest of the UK how to pull of a spectacular knee-jerk reaction to a single complaint about a so-called 'racist' painting.

The genuine Banksy was, of course, not racist. Ironically it was an anti-racist illustration. And I'm prepared to bet the complaint was from some white middle-aged woman who works for a school / social worker / the council.

It's just a shame they don't act so quickly when you need them to do the very things your council tax supposedly pays for. Planning applications can take months, years even. Noise complaints often require several follow-up calls and letters, with evidence of recordings.

But a single complaint over something that may or may not be racist - scrub it immediately.

What's that? It was a £400k Banksy? Anti-racism message you say? Oops...

Bit like when bigots would shake Warren Mitchell / Alf Garnett's hand for taking the piss out of coons and darkies.

Errr, nearly right, mate. Nearly right.

Or maybe they get rid of all graffitti when they can. Just because he's famous doesn't mean they want it - otherwise you're just encouraging other people who either think they are, or want to be, popular to copy him.

The District Council should send itself on a 'diversity awareness amongst artists' course in order to synergise it's diversity compliance with that of edgy middle-class urban street artists.

Still, we can be at least happy that if Clacton had a problem with UKIP voting foster parents or a generation of vulnerable girls being groomed by taxi drivers, the super switched on Council could be trusted to understand the situation and make the right decision.

Me, I'd have it professionally removed and then sell it, but you can obviously afford to pass up the chance of a few hundred thou. Lucky you.
