Good news from the BBC. I like a lot of Banksy's work: he's a witty satirist. But he's not the second coming of Botticelli, and we need to nip in the bud the idea that his work is so artistically important that it should be preserved at all costs.

Maybe the current crisis isn’t the result of years of cheap credit and over-leveraged banks. Maybe it’s actually an atavistic response to the nights getting longer. Too many bankers go for a few days in a row without seeing daylight, and their deeply-buried lizard brain starts whispering to them that the world is ending.
