Anonymous British street artist Banksy has come up with new art with a symbolic message about Brexit at this year’s Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London.

The artwork is called “Keep Ou”. The words are written over a European Union arrivals gate which has been shuttered and padlocked. The “T” is being used by a rat to try and break the lock open at the bottom of the gate.

Brexit was set into motion in 2016 and has been a subject for debate since then. Britain has been in a political deadlock with the British Parliament rejecting all alternate Brexit oons.

Earlier this month, British Prime Minister Theresa May quit from her post, officially triggering a contest to replace her that could see the Conservative party embrace a tougher stance on Brexit.

May gave up the top job less than three years after she took over from David Cameron.
