It’s that time again.. UK elections. This time 'local' and not 'national', but still basically the same: Hobson’s Choice politics - when you can get any political party to represent you that you would like.. As long as it’s right wing.

Fromage a Trois - Candidates for London Mayor

Ken, Boris and Brian were all on the show this week (for those who may be unfamiliar with them they are the Labour, Conservative and Liberal Demorat candidates for London Mayor - the single most powerful directly elected position in the UK), bickering away as though that is what people wanted to hear from the leading candidates for Mayor of London. But while it was very entertaining I’m not sure that’s what people were really looking to them to do. As a footnote: I was a bit disturbed to see that them turn up in the same colour suits as I’d painted them in - even though I completed the piece the day before.

Britain's Real Obesity Crisis..

The Politics Show has returned after the Easter break and this cartoon hopefully reflects the present economic worries of the nation which continues to carry the fat cats who continue to cream of the profits from banking where rates are lowered for them but raised for the rest of us, and ever greater price hikes from the privatised utilities and food giants - but we'll keep on paying and they'll keep on getting richer because that's the British way.

The Olympic Torch

Just Light Blue Touch-paper..

It looks like China’s problems in Tibet aren’t going to go away that easily. The Olympic Flame looks like turning into an international symbol of hope for Tibet, rather than the symbol of a successful modern China the authorities would want.

Zimbabwe Elections

Mugabe: Danger! Election Results Ahead

Few people believe that Mugabe and Zanu PF stand any chance of winning the the Zimbabwe elections if they are fair and honest. But we all know what Mugabe's idea of fair and honest is. But the signs are that books might be being cooked as I type to fiddle another 'win' for him. Whichever way this goes it's hard to see how violence can be avoided.
