Duncan, thanks for prompting me to improve Tony's vest. I have now reposted him in an argyle pullover.

Richard it wasn't a criticism of the tank top - I liked the irony that it was "tory blue". But the argyle looks fab.

Poor old Tony, you have to feel sorry for him, looks like we in Ireland are stuck with Bertie for another five years judging by the election results so far...at least the posters will come down now. Another great piece Richard, gets a '10' from me ;-)

I love the sweatervest. Does he wear vests in his spare time? Excellent idea and a wonderful likeness!

Great caricature with a great idea.

A side note on the matter- my favorite news article on the matter of his resignation was that a moving van had pulled up to 10 Downing Street. How does that make the news?
