Banksy's Devolved Parliament is back on display as Brexit looms

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION British street artist Banksy's 'Devolved Parliament' is back on display in the Bristol Museum, after a decade of absence.

It depicts politicians in the House of Commons as chimpanzees, and many visitors were quick to draw parallels to current day politics, as Brexit looms. "Well, considering it was painted ten years ago, I find that it's become a lot more relevant to politics now, especially with Brexit going on," said one visitor.

"I feels like this truly represents how I feel the Government looks like at the moment." The museum says the painting is the artist's largest work on canvas, and that it is now back on display, thanks to a loan from its owner.
