Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

For a few days now I've suspected something was afoot with Turnpike Lane's Banksy; it's been surrounded by scaffolding and tarpaulin since Wednesday - and there was a security van present for much of that time.

This morning I had a sneaky look under said tarpaulin to find it had been removed. I spoke to the guy rendering the wall and he said that after repeated attempts to gouge it out, the owner of the Poundland building had decided to take steps to 'preserve' it. He wasn't sure where it's gone...one can only wonder if it's been sold. Sad to see it go - it was nice to have a landmark of sorts...

Oh, is it next month? Someone on Twitter was saying that it's selling in Camden today!

I wonder how soon before Haringey's "politicians" will jump on the bandwagon and start urging petitions and email campaigns to stop this new sale?

Anyone know what happened with the offer by Poundland's owners to let street artists use their wall - but only on condition that the Council promised to protect it?
