      A triumph for Rich and Marks; biting satire and relevant in a resonant, moprhic, balletic and counter-cultural way – confounding conventional expectations and refusing to play the whole ‘entertain me’ intellectual games played by those who have prostituted their art. Readers become slaves to a consumerist ethic, reading their own personas into the two dimensional space inhabited by Rich and Marks.

      And yet two dimensional isn’t quite right, is it? The continual inability of the critical viewer on this site adds at least a third dimension; is it not so much that the cartoons fail to persuade the reader of their worth, but that the reader cannot persuade the cartoon to conform to their own passive expectations? Humour, always relative, becomes elusively personal and the failure to find these offerings amusing is consequently nowhere a failure other than the intellect of the viewer.

      I; challenged like so many before me to locate conventional meaning, topicality, political bite and cultural relevance have to admit defeat.

      Brave work; magnificent work. I stand mute, puzzled and confounded.

      . biased media. Tehse cartoons dont; the desired response is a quizzical eyebrow before we get the whole

      Er, nope; they’re just crap.

      I agree. He looks like a t&%t. Furthermore, every bloody cyclist should be run over at least twice daily.

    O-M-G.

    I see what you’ve done there.

    You’ve taken a well-known line from that film, Terminator, and made it look like Steve Hilton (or is it Paul Daniels?) said it.

    BUT – and here’s the genius, if you don’t mind me saying – HE PROBABLY WON’T BE BACK!

    ROFL! ROFL!

    Rich and Mark, comedy salutes you. There is no-one else of your standard working today.

    You gotta laugh, some wizened old socialist on the toady program this morning was complaining about putin being unfairly elected, yet their preferred leaders barosso, von rumpy, baroness ashton etc., never even had the pretence of an election.

        And to make matters worse the bbc again send out that old died in the wool Communist / Socialist (champagne variety and Kinnock lover) Jim the Red Naughty out to take over the propaganda coming from the Beeb on the Republican elections. Obviously they cannot rely on their Democrat stringers to provide the required high level of Democratic / Obama bias.
        They even managed to find an old “Republican” that heaped praise on Obama – don’t let the truth get in the way of “good” propaganda.
        The beeb has its own out of this world standards on bias, as it did in supporting Quadaffi until it proved impossible to sustain; Putin because he could damage them in Russia; Asad they are on the sidelines as with their “cannot be confirmed” constant dosage as if the “rebels” are really very sophisticated and making this all up; et al.

    To those that oppose gay marraige.

    I suspect that this voices will not be taking part when the policy is made law.

    If the rich cannot comment on the poor, whites cannot comments on blacks then hetros should not be able to comment on gays.

    Just sayin.

    freedom of choice.

    I have finally got it! At last!

    This is a Guido wind-up. These cartoons (sic) are MEANT to be unfunny and drawn so that we cannot recognise the subject. THAT’s the joke.

    Well done Guido, Rich and Mark – you got me. Now I can laugh at everyone else. So Mornington Crescent!

    Well done.

    Friday was the first time i’d heard of steve Hilton cycling barefoot. I can’t find any images of this but i doubt this is 100% correct, even in India they still wear flip flops . It could well be that he is using cycling sandals and these are a fantastic product. Like cycling shoes they are spd clip on so have all the advantages of clip on shoes but in summer are really cool and in winter put on seal skins and your feet remain warm and dry and if touring there is no need to carry evening footwear.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”



Alexrod says:

It’s money innit.
