TfL Cover Ban

Adverts featuring this cover for Heligoland, the latest album from Massive Attack, have been censored by Transport for London. TfL's rules for advertising on London Underground ban any advert that "uses handwriting or illustrations that would suggest the poster has been damaged, defaced, fly posted or subjected to graffiti". Robert del Naja, the band's artist, regards this as "...the most absurd censorship I've ever seen". Personally I'm surprised TfL allowed the black-and-white-minstrel look, which is extremely politically incorrect.
