Nina: Yvonne, can you talk us through the thinking behind this magnificent outfit you're wearing?

The Deptford X arts festival has punctured the complacent London arts scene with a show of such daring that it makes Piss Christ look like an Athena poster. Londonist reports:

Shock artist Mark McGowan has apologised after staging a play about the recent Raoul Moat incident. McGowan, performing at the Deptford X festival, transformed himself into the killer by placing a box on his head with the likeness of Moat cellotaped to the front.

It's the same publicity-seeking pillock who keyed cars for fun, ate a fox to highlight the plight of "crackheads" and who wanted to burn an effigy of Shilpa Shetty outside Bermondsey station.

Best ignored.

Its a bit late after the event,and somebody's got to take some of the blame for letting him do it.

It's interesting to see how time changes people's perceptions on these matters. When I walked past the Hare & Burke pub (strip joint?) in Edinburgh I wondered whether it would be acceptable to have a pub called the "Ye olde Myra Hindley". I doubt it.

What about "Buster" that playful romp about a member of a violent gang who beat a train driver unconscious,he never worked again and died early. Also it's interesting how The Sun got a hard in when the covered the Kray funerals, a couple of violent extortionists.

Yet more poor journalism (not from BC);what has he apologised for?

I find newspapers' selective adoration of criminal violence very creepy.

The stunt that I remember was when he walked backwards with a large turkey on his head shouting at fat people to highlight obesity.

I find him a bit hit and miss
