Jeremy Corbyn Appears As Obi-Wan Kenobi
Lightsabre master, or Labour disaster?

May the Force be with you. The political leanings of street artist Piicasa seem clear. Jeremy Corbyn is rendered as sage lookalike Obi-Wan Kenobi in this paste-up on the Old Street roundabout. Makes you wonder: was the first Star Wars film called Episode IV because Diane Abbott was in charge of the numbering?

It's not hard to find political street art at the moment. A lunchtime amble round the same area uncovered numeroous images depicting Theresa May in less-than-complementary style.

While this Artful Dodger piece has been up in Peckham for a while.

We've yet to spot street art depicting any of the other party leaders, but we were tickled by this UKIP intervention — also on Old Street — at the last General Election.
