UK ELECTION SOUVENIR SPECIAL!

An exclusive new Banksy print will be released on the 9th June. This limited edition artwork on archival quality paper is completely free, but is only available to registered voters in the Bristol North West, Bristol West, North Somerset, Thornbury, Kingswood and Filton constituencies. Simply send in a photo of your ballot paper from polling day showing you voted against the Conservative candidate and this complimentary gift will be mailed to you.

Lawyer's note: this print is a souvenir piece of campaign material, it is in no way meant to influence the choices of the electorate, has no monetary value, is for amusement purposes only and is strictly not for re-sale. Terms and conditions to follow, postage not included

"The Electoral Commission has warned voters against taking up Banksy’s offer of a free print if they voted against the Tories. The Electoral Commission has now warned a police investigation could be launched if anyone does take a picture inside a polling station."

If "it is in no way meant to influence the choices of the electorate", it would not require proof of voting against a candidate from a particular party. oO

How insulting, to think that our vote can be bought. How fickle does he think the public are. Get over yourself Mr or Mrs Banksy, (we dont know). Trying to buy votes, your no better than many other politicians.

How is this a Tory mistake?! Or is your comment just in general and not to do with this particular discussion.

Whoever did this could be in serious trouble. It's an offence to communicate hire someone voted -even your own vote. You can tell people but you cannot by image recording equipment.

The Electoral Commission warns against doing it inside the polling station, even if it's about your own vote. Elsewhere you are free to publicise your vote. However, as above, there are strict laws against revealing someone else's vote, including influencing whether they publish it themselves. Under Section 66 of the Representation of the People's Act it is a criminal offence to communicate information about the way someone has voted or is about to vote, and specifically to "directly or indirectly induce a voter to display his ballot paper after he has marked it so as to make known to any person the name of the candidate for whom he has or has not voted".

Agreed with comment above. You can't indemnify yourself of a crime by stating that your crime isn't a crime. It's like stealing a car but telling the police that you posted the whole thing on Twitter and it was performance art!

Love the comment on 'buying votes'...

Of course, the £3.7 million the Conservatives raised in the last couple of weeks (from hedge funds, bankers etc) will be used for no such thing.....

hes not hiring them, hes rewarding them for voting the way he does if that person chooses to share the way they voted.

Let's be honest. We shouldn't be encouraging any freebie that hopes to swerve voting intention. That's what this is. It's a subconscious bribe.

...and in no way imaginable is Labour's promise to remove tuition fees a tactic to influence students and potential students. No way Jose.

No, that's called a policy mate. People vote on what policies they want cos despite appearances politics is not actually football.

You have no idea how many leaflets and crap we've been getting from our Tory MP. He'll be trying owls next.

But sadly, this deal is iffy. Throw as much money at parties as you can muster = totally fine. Throw cool stuff at people = trouble.

There is no such thing as bad publicity.

Is there?

If you voted or will vote to keep your house price overinflated by this government you were bought, and the government know this.

tricky hmmmm
Well I don't 'buy' the buying votes doubt this would be worth much anyway just a print
and no doubt thousands being given away ?
the illegality like pashman said is the problem
I could suggest faking it but that would be very bad as well

Just remember, money got to come from somewhere and that will be us Tax payers. Spending what you cant afford is not good policy. Just a cheap way to buy yourself into parliament!
