Banksy is getting in on the action following the petrol bomb riots that erupted when Tesco opened a new store in his home town of Bristol last week.

The famed graffiti artist has lampooned Tesco in his latest piece, depicting a petrol bomb in the well known branding style of Tesco’s value range.

I imagine Tesco is fuming at the way it’s branding has been used behind the scenes but is taking the high road and not getting into a fight about it.

If you’re interested, the £5 posters are available at Bristol’s Anarchist Bookfair on Saturday, 7 May.

In wholly anti-anarchist style, the Bookfair Collective, which organises the event is discussing queue management for the event on its blog.
