Banksy pulled off an audacious stunt to produce what is believed to be his biggest work yet in central London.

The secretive graffiti artist managed to erect three storeys of scaffolding behind a security fence despite being watched by a CCTV camera.

Then, during darkness and hidden behind a sheet of polythene, he painted this comment on 'Big Brother' society.

Yesterday the scaffolding gang returned to remove all evidence - again without the camera operator stopping them.

The work, above a Post Office yard in Newman Street near Oxford Circus, shows a small boy, watched by a security guard, painting the words: 'One nation under CCTV.'

Andrew Newman, 35, a businessman from Dulwich, who works locally, said: 'It was only on Sunday morning that the Post Offices guys realised what had happened.'

if jack thompson had banksy's house raided he would probably find a copy of mark ecko's getting up contents under pressure and go on another anti-games witchhunt

Banksy should be given a medal for doing that.

Although I agree with that particular piece of artwork, I don't like most of his stuff. He's one stupid moron, some of his stuff is just... pathetic and prejudiced.
