Two Cartoons for Miliband’s Loo Wall

A belter of a conference cartoon special from Peter Brookes on the front page of this week’s Speccie. Guido would like to put in a bid for the original.

By delicious coincidence, this week’s New Statesman also goes the Wallace and Gromit theme on its cover.

It’s almost as if Miliband was a dead ringer for Wallace.

    With Cameron so shit-hot on gay wedding
    I wonder where it is that he’ll be heading
    Shopping to show he’s still the belle of the ball
    When the Tories flock to that Manchester hall

    There’s no such thing as a free lunch !

    Unless you are a child under 7 or an MP over 7

    nellnewman says:

    You mean there’s somewhere in the world that hasn’t got problems any that we could emigrate to?

  15. 15
    nellnewman says:

    Well balls had better enjoy his time as shadow chancellor because bumblingvince has given notice that he expects to be chancellor in a labour government come 2015.

  16. 16
    Barrie O'Bummer says:

    I have launched a preemptive strike against this cartoon.

  17. 17
    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Ecoloons says:

    Come 2015 Vince will be in an old peoples home (known as The House of Lords) and Milliband will be PM with a landslide majority.

    Anyone with any sense will be planning to emigrate.

    In actual fact, I will be in charge, WHOEVER wins the next Election ! :)

    Point of Information 7 says:

    The UK economy may be indirectly affected by the drop out of Larry Summers from Fed running announced over the weekend.

    Here is part of the real reason why Obama’s favorite to succeed Bernanke bowed out:

    Now: Carney as a GS guy running the B.o.E. is perhaps less likely to be able to deliver on whatever it is he is being paid for.

    Oops :-)

    Tim Geithner would be logically the next choice, but as Larry’s right hand man, perhaps he is wise to play this down in the media and not stand.

    (What dirt exists on him ???)

    The core of this issue is that it is now proven that those running the banks have been broadly setting the regulatory and legal frameworks within which they operate.

    The secondary issue is it is now concerned that many running the large banks have not only been appropriating government money to keep speculative capital mis-allocation going, but have been doing so with an eye to profit on economic collapse.

    Scary-it could easily come to pass.

    The Quiet Man says:

    Wizard cartoon, but of course it offers the possibility that some may project a humorous spin towards Gideon and the 2 failed leaders.

  26. 26
    EU Funded Pro-EU Troll says:

    Vote UKIP

  27. 27
    Calamity Clegg, Chief Cockroach says:

    No, but I’ll tell the public I’m in charge, even though in reality I’m a five star loser.

    Ed Balls is not Grommit. He is more your actual Feathers McGraw, the evil penguin disguised as a chicken.

    People who know bankers say that they’re pretty straight kind of guys.

    Particularly with – non Christian – names like Goldman and Sachs.

    Well, you lot started it all with your stupid medieval Christian rules on ‘usury’ Your governments and traders had nowhere to borrow capital from. We merely filled the gap.

    Did Milipede ever ‘fes up to Guido about his lunch date with Mr Wanger? His lunch with the loan guy (perhaps he was asking for a bit of Wonga to pay his Co-op debts)?

    Any “moneyback” Gordon?

  49. 49
    Gideon says:

    The only ones that say bankers are pretty straight kind of guys, are Bankers. Bankers have to regain the confidence of the general public, if politicos just take bankers at face value after the last fiasco will get all that is coming to them.

    Citing the on-going effects the Eurozone crisis , a hardcore group of Lazio fans, the Banda Noantri, have filed for bankruptcy in a Rome court.

    Claiming that costs of staging running street brawls, and maintaining a thorough armament of missiles to hurl at players and opposing fans, had risen to ‘out of control levels’, the group was left unable to cover debts.

    A spokesperson for the group, Giuseppi Rondoncero, claimed that it was a “sad day” for fans of ultraviolence and hooliganism.

    He said: “It is very hard to take; we have a loyal group of alienated young thugs ready to go out and disrupt Lazio games all season long.

    “We are all some of these young guys have – without the running street battles with the carabinieri, and the time spent recovering in hospital from various injuries, they will have nothing.”

    Speaking on the court steps following moves to put the outfit – consisting of roughly two hundred unemployed young men aged under thirty – into administration, Rondoncero alluded to the costs associated with maintaining an effective social disorder unit.

    He said: “Like any group, we have overheads; koshes, bike chains, flares – then there’s the paint and fabric we need to make banners featuring slogans celebrating fascism.

    King Cnut says:

    The way V C is firing from the hip I would say he has his sights on Clegg’s job – not the Chancellor’s. In any event there is many a slip between cup and lip! On the other hand if push came to shove I would rather have Cable as Chancellor than Balls. Preferably neither of course.

    The Maimed Badger says:

    Monty used to have a picture of the enemy commander on the wall in his command wagon but yes, this one would do well in the bog, to remind us what crap is…

    An Ex Tory says:

    Another politician cops out, Teresa May leaves the decision on muslim veils to the locals to sort out knowing full well that school govenors etc will be intimidated by the community , the islamists, into letting them do what they want. Useless as is usual.

  58. 58
    Ed Balls (Not the Shawdow Chancellor due to Vince the Cable) says:

    It will be interesting to see the government front bench with half a dozen burkas sitting on it, dont you feel enriched, more like enshitted.

    No power on earth, not even Ed Milliband, can prevent Labour winning the next election.

    Constituency boundaries are rigged in Labour’s favour. Their voter-import scheme, staffed by millions of Third World immigrants, is bearing fruit. Postal-voting fraud is still in place. Public sector employees and benefits claimants will vote Labour en masse, convinced that they have been suffering unbearable “austerity”. The BBC remains on-side, and will do everything necessary to ensure that it is a Labour government with whom they will negotiate the Charter renewal, and a plump upgrading of the Licence Fee.

    And UKIP will take enough votes from the Conservatives to deprive them of up to 30 seats. Well done, Dave ! And welcome to Parasites’ Britain, 2015.

    the general public says:

    Guido, show this cartoon to R & M and tell them to take note of the following:

    a. it is funny
    b. it contains satire
    c. it is not drawn as if done by an 8 year old

    John Bellingham says:

    Be thou not downcast. The Labour government of 2015 will see Scotland secede, the collapse of the pound, bankruptcy, IMF intervention, unpaid public-sector salaries, the confiscation of all savings above £80,000 (except Labour Party millionaires) and Home Rule for the Islamic Republics of Newham, Slough, Bradford and Leicester.
    Hopefully all that will lead to the bastards of Westminster swinging from lamposts.

    gerrydorrian66 says:

    I never thought I’d say this, but could Labour really mess things up worse than the coalition? Then again, the Coalition just made Labour’s original mess bigger…

    So much for the future according to the Daily Mail. Back in the present, the rest of us understand how the:
    rich find ways to avoid tax,
    the top rate of was cut to 45%,
    bankers – who nearly sank the nation – are protected,
    well know Coffee House got away with not paying tax,
    NHS is being sold off,
    idea of Greed it not Good.

    For we are becoming sick of the Con-Dem kicking us when we are down – while sucking up to big business. Welcome to Good Britain 2013!

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
