After my recent post on Banksy and Space Invader, here is a new piece of guerilla art, made in the centre of Faversham.

How Faversham fights – machine guns and pints

The last military conflict to take place on British soil occurred near Faversham, Kent on 27th September 1940. On one side: the crew of a downed Junkers 88. On the other: members of the London Irish Rifles. Following a brief but intense exchange of fire, in which no one was killed, all the participants retired to the local pub, the Sportsman, for a few pints.

Is this model of conflict resolution appropriate for situations beyond mere global conflict?
