I responded to The Guardian's recent invitation for readers to send in alternative election posters but mine was not among those they chose to print in the G2 section last week. I'm not bothered since I have my own alternative audience right here, haven't I? So here is my take - a Photoshopped montage of bits and pieces borrowed from the internet - on the three-horse race currently taking place here in the not-so-united Queendom.
All politicians, as far as
concerned, are endlessly spinning on a carousel
never stops churning out platitudes, promises and
In the first TV debate between the three current
for the top spinning job, the
mere fact that there were three of them instead of
usual two (Labour and Conservative) made it slightly
exciting. And when the interloper Nick Clegg began
and look like a real human being rather than an
sound-bitten parody of one, I thought, okay, maybe
jump off the merry-go-round and really be the
different' his party political message keeps
he's got an emigré Russian grandmother, a Dutch
a Spanish wife, children with Spanish names, and he
more than one language. So I'll vote for him.
