No craft carrier

Apparently in a few years time we will have an aircraft carrier or two.... but no planes to fly off them. For NINE years! So we will effectively have some large defenceless car parks bobbing around the ocean for the best part of a decade at huge cost. I tried to capture the 'carry on regardless' mentality which makes up the British character. We will definitely need a sense of humour if the tories continue like this.

So George Osborne's big day today. Cuts cuts and more cuts. Will it improve the situation or not that is the question. I have no idea - it seems the more I learn about economics the less I know. What I do know is that Osborne's nose looks to me like a bell end.

Stop me if...'ve heard this one before. Ok so I had this idea for a gag then half way through drawing it up I had this nasty feeling. Had I seen it before? Someone must have come up with it. Had I seen it? God knows i've looked at enough cartoons in my lifetime. This must be a familiar scenario with cartoonists. Actually this must be a familiar scenario for many: the song writer who writes a song only to realise they have used the chord changes from Hey Jude. I guess this is why I prefer doing political cartoons - if they are topical they have to be new. So onward, I checked with Google images - nothing. That's not to say it's not out there - how much time am I supposed to spend looking?
