No round up this week, but a ‘toon

Ok, due to essay crises/campaigning/recess we’ve had no round up of the last few weeks, and that continues now but we do have another of @dochackenbush’s ‘photohacks’ so all is well!!

Round up of the week!

This has been a more sedate and less insane week (partly due to the parliamentary recess) with the only real interest being in the London election campaigns, with a rather one-sided grilling on Newsnight and a radio interview which led to Boris Johnson screaming  at Ken Livingstone in a lift; calling him “a Fucking Liar”.

With the election stress escalating, how long is it before one of these candidates blows his top?

Thanks to the very talented @DocHackenbush for another great ‘photohack’!

Round up of the Week 30/3/2012 with 2 Photohacks*!

It has been a week which has swung from the sublimely ridiculous to the abhorrently ridiculous.

We began the week with some fall out from the frustrating but unsurprising “Cash for Cameron” tory donation scandal.. This means we can have our first amazing “photohack*” from the venerable @DocHackenbush!

…after that, there isn’t much more we really need to say on that subject.

 

The fallout from the Budget got a really silly this week when this became the week twitter went #pastytax mad! It turns out there is a change in the budget that means heated snack items are now subject to a tax, which means both leading Tories were asked when they last ate a pasty.. the answer seems to be “errr do caviar aperitifs count?”

This meant Labour wasted no time in running to a pasty and tweeting pictures of them eating the cornish delicacies.. oh dear oh dear. With this and the Tory donors story, Cameron is panicking…

 

More bad news for the government involved Francis Maude pissing off firemen (fire officers?), worrying the public and entertaining the rest of us by suggesting we each keep a Jerry Can of petrol in our garage in case of a tanker-driver’s strike…

 

All in all pretty bad for the Government this week with labour being able to capitalise..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then, however, this man became an MP again rather than an incredibly well qualified labour candidate..

 

 

 

A very strange week in politics, we’ll blog about the last piece of news more next week…

Have a more settled weekend, and thanks to @DocHackenbush for his Photohacks*!
