A 43-year-old Whitechapel builder has claimed that world-renowned street artist, ‘Banksy’, wrote, ‘Kick me, I’m a twat’ on the back of his donkey jacket in white chalk while he was travelling on the tube to work yesterday.
Toby Dell, a married father of two from Columbia Road, told us: “When I got to work, I noticed that the other lads were nudging each other and laughing behind my back
“Well, I’m the one who’s laughing now. Thanks to Banksy, I’ve got a priceless work of art on my coat”
“He must have done it at some point on the District Line between Whitechapel and Plaistow, where I got off.
“It’s definitely a Banksy. I recognise his handwriting from that climate change one he did last week”
Mr Dell’s wife, Tracy, 42, was a little more guarded in her reaction: “I’m pretty sure Toby junior did it after his dad bollocked him for pissing on the seat in the downstairs loo”
