Another one of my periodical roundups, featuring other wee bits and bobs I’ve done in amongst my #PortraitChallenge efforts.
8th December 2018 Brexit—the gift that keeps on giving! Here’s a super present idea for Christmas. Guaranteed hours of ennui for all the family!
11th January 2019 They say today’s news headlines are tomorrow’s fish & chip wrapper. And, sometimes, yesterday’s #PortraitChallenge is today’s washing up.

Tools of the trade Flushed with the success of my foray into porcine punning yesterday, which received no less than a collosal FOUR! re-tweets on Twitter [and three of them weren’t even me!] –I decided to return to the fray today, with another cartoon inspired by the Conservative Party Conference, taking place just down the road at the mo'.

Barely had the ballot paper landed on the doormat, when it was followed shortly afterwards by an avalanche of leaflets from the various candidates. I don’t know why they even bother wasting the money printing this shite up [Although judging from the grotty, smudgy, sub church newsletter offerings from a few of the smaller parties, not everyone exactly broke the bank, publicising their pipedreams]....

Nice to see all the main parties falling into line and voting for [albeit with a couple of insignificant amendments] The Government’s new Anti-Terror laws. These were brought in after the senile cunts in the House of Lords actually woke up long enough to realise that the previous policy of allowing anyone suspected of "Being a Johnny Foreigner" er… sorry, I mean of "Planning Terrorism" to be detained indefinitely without charge and without them or their solicitors being given access to the evidence against them was "...
