        Hi guys. It’s great to be back in Britain. We’re backing Brokeback Dave and the Coalition for the Bankers. We know a winner when we see one.

        Are we done? Thank fuck. Let’s fuck off out of this shithole back to South Africa, Monaco, the British Virgin Islands…

      Fucking proles trying to spoil our wedding. Fucking scum think they own the fucking country, unlike dear grandmama and papa.

      Thank fuck those nice men who pumped seven bullets into the Brazilian sparky’s head will be running around London ready to smash any pleb who so much as dares to protest at an unaccountable, privileged elite having a multi-million pound bash whilst UK has the highest fuel and energy prices in the world, the soon to be highest education fees and the fastest rising food prices in the OECD.

      This must be a cartooning low-point.

      I mean despite keeping up with the news I don’t get it, and then it’s not even funny.

      What’s the F point?

      Bedtime, Bilbo. You can wake up at 7am and resume posting for another 18 hours.

      Quite. The sly way Mark Andrich avoided drawing any faces is quite cunning. I usually use profile or shadow to hide my utter incompetence and lack of artistic capability.

      Never mind sunshine Cleggy is finished, Cammers will promote him to the lords for being the perfect human shield in 2015

    Limp Dumps says:

    Why did Nick Clegg cross the road?

    Because he promised not to.

    • 70
      nobody agrees with Nick says:

      You have to admire the way Cameron has destroyed the Lib Dumbs with Cleggs help.
      They won’t be trused with manifesto promises ever again and now they are busy helping in a regime change for oil in the middle east after all their pious posturing over Iraq.

      You might almost feel sorry for them if Clegg wasn’t such a contemptable wanker.

    Limp Dumps says:

    Guido, it was mentioned on the radio there are rumours the Huhney monster has been whispering to colleagues about having a leadership challenge. Any truth to this?

    Cassandrina says:

    What about the BBC’s idea of restructuring?
    Changing digital BBC radio 7 to radio 4 extra and giving more Archers background as well as the old stalwarts in humour such as Just a Minute.
    Thousands of people have complained they need an “Archer’s free zone” – especially true as most of the programmes audience is dying off.
    If this is Thompson’s idea of restructuring then he should go back to prep school

    Fabulous stuff – I’m glad Guido took my earlier advice and allowed his 4 yr old and 2 yr old to do this week’s cartoon.

    Hang on a minute -you’re now telling me this is a Skid and Mark original – No surely not – it’s humorous and doesn’t look like it’s been drawn by a colour blind 9 yr old. No – it surely can’t be Skid and Mark!!!

    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    Where is everybody its only 2am and I’m just warming up and ready to pounce on any left wing socialist who dares to show his face on here. Billy will beat um into the ground. I’m David Cameron’s unpaid oracle in Kiwi land and I can sink the Labour Rebuttal unit single handedly with my sheer persistence and tenacity. I’m like a bout of galloping Herpes, you think that you’ve got rid of me but I keep coming back and everytime its worse then the previous outbreak.

    Itchy & Scratchy says:

    Oh dear, here we go again…

  15. 23
    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    Later today I will break out on Labourlist and confront those pesky socialists with the vile economic crimes they have committed and smoke out any lingering deficete deniers. They won’t know what’s hit um when Billy opens up with both barrels.

    albacore says:

    Lyrical, R & M, even without an extra “n”.
    Liberals – the original yellow birds up high in banana tree (though I doubt that that old patois song would pass the Black & White Minstrel Show test these days).
    Still a very nicely visualised badge, though. With its unbalanced wings, that canary would spin around and around in circles until it disappeared up its own, erm, logo.

    Broon is to give a lecture on economics at Embra Yooni !

    • 27
      Tapestry says:

      Brown will say that the laws of economics are repealed. There will be no more boom and bust, just permanent warfare to help Wall St grab all the world’s resources and quadruple the price of all commodities, ensuring that the peasants are kept in their place, and politicians get ever richer.

    • 32
      Grumpy Old Man says:

      One can only feel the deepest sympathy for the country that produced Adam Smith, the author of the Wealth of Nations, also produced Gordon Brown, the Destroyer of the Wealth of Nations

      Lady Virginia Droit de Seigneur says:

      If SWP loons, anarchists and other assorted spongers really cared about the UK they would turn up at this and throw bricks, ammonia filled light bulb and other assorted debris at the real governmental villain of the past two decades.

        Who Thatcher you mean ?? Surely its all HER fault for EVERYTHING..I mean she may not have been in power for 21 years but hey that’s no excuse

          Hugh Janus says:

          I had the misfortune to be in London on Saturday, and couldn’t help laughing out loud at a bunch of ‘marchers’ swaggering down Wellington Street doing the “Maggie out” chant. The sad thing is I really believe they meant it.

      labourunionsbbc we are one says:

      The cowardly fu’ck is even trying to make it political by adding the sound-bite
      ‘Jobs and Justice’, what a plonker.

      Brown's lecture on economics says:

      Tax-cuts take money out of the economy. Gold is best sold at the bottom of the market – and it’s good to pre-announce the sale to warn everybody. The lowest-paid workers should have their income tax doubled. Thank you.

    After two years of trying R&M have done something that might have appeared in an MSM paper – The Frome Gazette (alternate Mondays in the summer months only).

    QWERTY says:

    Barking mad slapper shagger Paddy Pantsdown is all over the BBC this morning spouting utter shit that ‘climate change’ is causing earthquakes around the world.

    Natch the BBC let his spout this crap unchallenged.

    What a mong.

    • 43
      Observer says:

      Did the earth move for Paddy Pantsdown?

    • 64
      Tessa Tickles says:

      Even by LimpDim standards, he’s clinically insane. I used to like him, but since quitting as party leader he appears to have lost the plot.

      • 83
        misterned says:

        Tony Blair’s betrayal really fucked him up. He thought Tony was a decent, honest man who would support PR and get the Liberals into power.

        Seeing that Tony was a cynical power crazed liar hurt him.

        Now seeing the Liberals in power with conservatives has really messed him up bad.

        As for climate change causing earthquakes? Oh dear oh dear. That is not even worth wasting neurons firing to respond to.

  23. 45
    Joss Ayinglike says:

    I see that ‘Saint’ Vince Cable has resurrected his ‘Mansion Tax’ wheeze, yet again. The LimpDum message is crystal clear: if you succeed in life through hard work or good fortune, Vince will ensure that the fruits of your labour are taken from you and gifted to the work shy or less lucky.

    The Tall Poppy syndrome is alive and well in the Limp Dum world.

      Hugh Janus says:

      It is high time this bumbling old fool was dumped. And anyway, what has yet another hair-brained method for extracting even more tax from us got to do with our (alleged) Business Secretary?? Time on his hands again? Bugger all else to do in his long and tedious days?

      • 99
        Spank Sinatra says:

        Relax – nobody listens to him nowadays. He’s just a bumbling old fool better suited to tv ads for Werther’s Originals.

    Bring home the canon fodder says:

    The number of people taking part in the TUC march has now been numbered at 28 million. The early figures of 250,000 and 500,000 quoted by the BBC and Brendan Barber respectively were grossly out.

    • 49
      The BBC says:

      Of the 28 million, only TWO people caused the rioting and extensive damage to parts of London.

      • 51
        eeu to me says:

        I thought the damage was done by global warming an earthquake and a tsunami, all those lovely people were on the way home when the damage occured.
        I wonder how many are having a day off sick after all that walking.

        • 79
          Mornington Crescent says:

          Double time for ‘working’ on Saturday, plus a day off in lieu Monday, a Duvet Day on Tuesday and a no-questions-asked Sickie on Wednesday. Two whole fucking days working this week – could be tough for some of ‘em.

      • 62
        Fa Kin Su Pah says:

        Of course the peaceful march which was
        ‘Mostly peaceful’ was attended by all of Britain.
        And only affected by mutant Thatcherites who
        are mental.
        Look out for big demand in private security mostly
        peopled by large burly men in short dark jackets
        with no hair.

        More laughter from the BBC News Channel says:

        AND I bet THEY were Tories

          BBC News Update says:

          From Italy.

          • More laughter from the BBC News Channel says:

            Was he in the plastic bowler hat the one who asked by BBC News Channel’s Tim Willcox during the “family friendly march of the millions” on Saturday afternoon…”How much do you earn ? How much do you earn ?” to which the urbane Mr Willcox replied “THAT’s nothing to do with YOU !”(unspoken thought no doubt…” now fuck off you wierdo !”)before moving at a brisk pace with camera crew towards a more BBC friendly member of the “protest”

      The March of the Troglodytes says:

      Let’s ne thankful that at least they didn’t chain themselves to railings,lie in front of Hackney Carriages or throw themeselves in front of the King’s Horse at the Derby which “Red Ed” seemed to think was possible given he thought thathe was on a “Suffragette March” !

    • 82
      Hugh Janus says:

      Strange, isn’t it, that as soon as the march turned extremely nasty, the BBC went clean out of its way to completely absolve the TUC of any responsibility for the rioting, vandalism, fires, window smashing and so on.

      The thing is, it was their march. They called for it knowing that the yob element would get stuck in. On that basis they should be held fully responsible for the repairs and the clearing up afterwards.

  25. 49
    eeu to me says:

    It’s Monday morning and another R&M “cartoon”,oh well, then I thought we now know who R&M are, who had the kids over the weekend Guido did,the litteuns are R&M ,they pinted his chairs so why not get them to paint on some A4.

    SDP 2 says:

    How about the Social Democrat Party?

  27. 53
    BBC NEWS says:

    Saturday’s march was attended by the entire population of Great Britain. As 60m marched, Lord Ashcroft smashed windows and beat up police.

          They used to be…..if you examine previous censuses now released they list all such establishments and their inmates…workhouses,orphanages,hospitals,asylums and sanitorums are all listed but then again that WAS before the Human Rights Act

      Cynical-old-bag says:

      This just goes to show how ill-informed and ignorant these people are.

      They’re not the slightest bit interested in the why’s and wherefore’s, they just want to destroy something.

      I hope they all get huge fines and custodial sentences.

      • 87
        Hugh Janus says:

        No, much better to set them to work repairing the fruits of their labours (or should that be Liebours?). If, according to the BBC, there were so few of them, it should provide them with some long-term means of repayment to society, instead of locking them up and charging us for their board and keep.

      • 90
        The March of the Troglodytes says:

        Naw…I suspect a lot of these are over-privileged kids from leftie professional classes who’ll be let off with a caution as soon as they can get “Mummy” or “Daddy” to get their very expensive solicitor down to the cells to tell the plod that their client’s completely out-of-character behaviour and pranks, were down to natural youthful exuberance and they got carried awy with the moment,very much regret it, excellent good character,high achiever at school/college or university…..” and once released sent back to their private school or privileged existence at Oxbridge to plan their next “youthful prank”

        Fa Kin Su Pah says:

        It would be particularly rewarding
        if this blog could identify two interesting
        specimens who unusually were not masked.
        Both seem to be held after emerging from
        the posh grocers shop. One was dictating during his arrest
        and the other was eating a sandwich. A perk from the shop
        no doubt.

    Well Well Well. Gordon is a true Chapagne socialist.

    “It was a well-kept secret that he drank only champagne, but was paranoid about it turning up on his hotel bills so his aides often had to fork out in cash.”

      Gordon's High Life says:

      So why weren’t those lefties who hate rich lifestyles protesting at Gordon Brown MP traveling along with six taxpayer funded aides in taxpayer funded business class seats on a flight to and from the mid East?

      FFS he is now just an MP and a part time one at that..

      • 98
        ???? says:

        You obviously don’t realise that Gordon Brown(much like Bliar) is “persona non grata” in senior Labour/Union circles and not to be mentioned..there’s too many lines leading back to Miliband and Balls ….the last thing they want is for people to be constantly reminded of their connection and input into Brown’s failed policies that created the mess that they are getting their supporters to protest about…

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
