Banksy takes on hackgate

It was bound to happen. The mysterious and subversive street artist and the recent hacking scandal that brought down News Of The World seemed like perfect bedfellows.

The elusive Bristolian, famed for his anti-capitalist and anti-establishment messages, posted up a picture of his latest, which is yet to be located. It's rumoured to be in Wapping, East London, near the News International headquarters.

It's not the first time Banksy and Murdoch have intersected. He previously directed the opening sequence of the show, which you can see here.

We're guessing he probably won't be invited back again...
