United Kingdom

Wanker Investigations


Prince Harry fled to the United States and did the most American thing one can do, publish a tell-all. Harry says that he hopes to repair his relationship with his family in the future, but you don’t do that by publishing a tell-all.

I’m not taking sides. I care about Harry versus Willy about as much as I cared about Jacob versus Edward. I’m disgusted that I can even know that reference.

I watched some of the Oprah interview with Harry and Meghan, but I didn’t watch the 60 Minutes or ITV interviews of Harry. I did read a couple of analyses of it, including this one by CNN. My greatest take from them is boo-hoo-hoo.

These royals are spoiled welfare babies who live in a bubble and will turn on each other for the slightest bit of good press in the tabloids. Drugged-out rock bands don’t turn on each other as badly as this for good press. According to Harry, his own father would leak damaging info about his two sons in order to gain sympathy from the public. Now, Harry is doing the same thing to gain sympathy from the public, and in order to do so, he’s dishing dirt on his father and brother.

Harry makes his father and brother look like jerks. He claims his brother physically assaulted him during an argument over press coverage of Meghan. He says his father didn’t hug him when he told him his mother, Diana, had died. He claims in his book, “Spare,” that his dad would joke that one of his mother’s lovers might be his real father.

My father told some revolting jokes to his children, but never anything as bad as, “Who knows if I’m even your real father? Maybe your real father is in Broadmoor, darling boy!” Of course, if my father had ever called me “darling boy,” then I’d start to suspect he wasn’t my father.

My main gripe over the coverage of the royals is the sexist treatment Meghan Markle receives. Maybe some of that is also by the royal family. But it’s sexist to blame her for the rift between Harry and his family. Yes, if you’ve shared a Yoko meme, you’re being sexist. Just like John Lennon was when the Beatles broke up, Harry is an adult and is responsible for his own decisions and actions. Blaming Meghan may also be racist.

I don’t really care that much about the royals, but there’s more meat to this than with Hunter Biden, who is not a royal. If the Tories in Parliament were as vile, horrifying, and stupid as the House Republicans, then they’d be starting investigations into Prince Harry as a distraction.

It’s a lot easier to politicize something for the noise it makes than it is to pass significant legislation. The House Republicans will prove this over the next two years because they’re going to make a lot of noise without passing anything that’ll make it through the Senate and land on the president’s desk. Matt Gaetz has already made an appeal for the cameras in the House chamber to be on 24/7.

On another note about families: Notice that Harry didn’t publish his book while his grandmother the queen was still alive. If he had, She probably would’ve kicked his ass.

Music note: I listened to The Pixies.

Lettuce Vs Republicans


Here’s your cartoon for this week’s CNN Opinion newsletter. Please sign up to get these in your inbox every Sunday

I think the question here is: Can Republicans gaslight enough about Critical Race Theory, immigration, crime, inflation, gas prices, transgenders, gay agendas, parent rights, wokeism, and Hunter’s laptop loud enough that the public doesn’t notice they don’t have a plan for anything except to cut Social Security and Medicare? The sad thing is, Republicans just might be able to pull it off.

I’d rather vote for the lettuce.

Creative note: I drew this cartoon while having a cold and thinking it might be Covid. But, two tests taken 24 hours apart said no.

Music note: I listened to the Kaiser Chiefs’ album “Yours Truly, Angry Mob” while drawing this.

Birther in the UK


Rishi Sunak is set to become the next Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. While many are celebrating that he’ll be the first nonwhite person to lead the four nations, he’s still a Tory with the same Tory policies that put the UK into a greater recession than the U.S. is experiencing, torpedoed the London stock exchange, and limited the last PM to 45 days.

Sunak is promising his focus will be “stability and unity,” which is similar to what Liz Truss said at the start of her brief era as PM.

Sunak, who is the son of Indian refugees, is the former chancellor of the Exchequer (the bank account into which public monies goes into, or something like that) and the third PM in the last seven weeks. At 42, he’s also the youngest PM in two centuries. And once again, the public didn’t have a say in who their next PM will be.

The United Kingdom needs a new election for Parliament. If the new PM calls for one, you can be pretty sure the Conservative Party (Tories) will lose the majority and Labour will set the agenda, and Sunak will be out. I don’t expect him to call for one anytime soon.

Before all this takes place, current PM Liz Truss has to visit Buckingham Palace to formally stand down. Then, Sunak will meet with King Charles who will ask him to form a government. This will be the second time within two months the King has had to do this. This is seriously going to crimp into the King’s cricket schedule. And right when you finally learn someone’s name, they’re out.

No word yet if any MAGA Tories have asked to see the next PM’s birth certificate.

By the way, in case you forgot: There is no defense for birtherism. It’s racist.

Music note: I listened to a lot of Beach Boys while drawing this.

Heads of Boris


There’s actually a movement within the Conservative Party in the United Kingdom to replace Liz Truss with Boris Johnson, the former Prime Minister who Liz Truss replaced. Unfortunately for Boris, if he wants the job, even the Tories probably don’t suffer the kind of memory loss that afflicts American voters.

If you are an American voter, then 45 days is probably long enough to forget that Donald Trump and Republicans tried to overturn an election they lost after destroying the economy and gaslighting a virus that killed hundreds of thousands of Americans. Within a year of Trump and Republicans losing power, voters in Virginia gave power to Republican Glenn Youngkin forgetting that Republicans don’t care about democracy, personal freedom, and don’t really have any solutions to anything, except ideas that are very similar to the ones that got Liz Truss tossed after 45 days.

The majority of Americans are pro-choice and disagree with the Supreme Court giving states the power to ban abortion. And within six months of losing abortion as a constitutional right, American voters are about to return Congress to the party that took that constitutional right away from them, and while many Republicans are talking about banning abortion nationally. Are we stupid or what?

Donald Trump’s biggest legislative achievement was to give himself a tax cut. How’d that trickled-down help you out? It didn’t. After 40 years of this shit without any proof it works, conservatives are still pushing it. Liz pushed it until it pushed her out of office.

George W. Bush gave the rich a tax cut while increasing the deficit to fund two wars. Donald Trump gave the rich a tax cut while also increasing the budget, partly to pay for his stupid racist border wall. Now there are rumors that if Republicans retake the House, they’ll go for more tax cuts for the rich that they’ll try to offset by making budget cuts to… wait for it… Medicare and Social Security. But what are they talking about? Crime, “open borders,” inflation, gas prices, transgenders, Critical Race Theory, and woke.

What are the Republicans’ plans to battle crime, “open borders,” inflation, gas prices, transgenders, Critical Race Theory, and woke?

First off, the borders are not open. Transgenders are not a problem. Critical Race Theory isn’t a thing in public schools. And woke? They can’t even tell you what that is. But what about battling that other stuff, crime, inflation, and high gas prices? They don’t have any plans. Ask them. It’s like asking them what’s in Hunter’s laptop. They don’t know.

The only plans Republicans have for when they return to power is to conduct multiple investigations and public hearings into bullshit and impeach President Biden. What do they have to impeach the president on? Nothing. That’s what they’re gonna use all those hearings for, to try to find something.

The Brits may be dumb enough to put conservatives in power, but they’re not dumb enough to give the PM job back to Boris. Unfortunately, we’re dumb enough to give Congress back to the GOP and maybe even dumb enough to give the White House back to Trump.

Americans are about to make a huge mistake our British cousins are smart enough to avoid.

Liz v. Lettuce


I didn’t know what I was going to draw this morning and sat at my drawing table with my iPad open while I considered my options. I had already created and dated the canvas I was going to draw on in Procreate, but I just didn’t have the idea yet. I considered using an idea I wrote last week for CNN, which I really like, but thought maybe a few other issues should take precedence, like the war in Ukraine. Of course, my TV was on during this.

My TV was on mute and saw a live feed of a podium sitting outside 10 downing street with “Breaking News: Liz Truss to address nation,” or something like that. I thought to myself, “What does she have to say?” I turned my head from the TV to look at the empty canvas again because that always works to inspire an idea (sarcasm), and when I looked back, a new breaking news headline was on the TV. LIZ TRUSS RESIGNS.

United Kingdom Prime Minister Liz Truss gave her resignation speech and I missed it. How long was I staring at that blank canvas? Not long. I blinked and I missed it.

Liz Truss was PM for 45 days. She was elected by the Conservative Party, not the voters of the UK. It’s kinda like here in the USA with the Supreme Court. One party picks a horrible fundamentalist fucknut zealot who the majority of the nation truly despises to sit on the highest court in the land for the rest of his or her life. At least the UK can shitcan their PM. We are stuck with SCOTUS judges for 30 years or so.

During her time as PM, she oversaw the tanking of the UK economy and made moves that derailed the nation’s stock market. She was a total disaster. Even the Queen died during her term. I know Liz Truss didn’t kill the Queen, but Elizabeth II waited 96 years for Liz Truss to take over before she died.

In the speech that I barely missed, Truss said she could “no longer deliver the mandate” upon which she had set out her stall, and spoke to King Charles III before resigning.

What mandate? The Conservative Party mandate? She won the slimmest majority from her own party to win the leadership position, which represents just 0.4 percent of the 47 million eligible UK voters. One problem with conservatives, in the UK and USA, is that they think 0.4 percent is a mandate. This is some real Mitch McConnell shit here.

Right now, a head of lettuce would probably win a larger “mandate” than Liz Truss.

The Daily Star, a right-leaning UK tabloid, bought a head of lettuce. With an average lifespan of ten days, the lettuce was placed against Liz Truss on the Star’s front page on October 14 in a competition to see which would last longer. It’s been six days. The lettuce won. In fact, the lettuce still has about four days left. You can still make a BLT with it which is more useful and purposeful than Liz Truss’s tenure as UK Prime Minister. Maybe we should throw some croutons at Truss and see what she can do with them. Personally, I find croutons useless, so they’d be perfect with Liz Truss.

Liz Truss will be replaced once again by the Tories in about a week. Just 45 days ago, they thought Liz Truss was their best option. Looking at who they have to pick from in the Conservative Party, the United Kingdom might be better if they go with the head of lettuce.

Oh, hey. Can we replace Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Amy Coney Barrett with heads of lettuce? Lettuce is less zealotry.

Corgi, Corgi, Corgi


I drew this Thursday afternoon just for social media and to have a little fun with my colleagues. When I drew this, there were at least six cartoons on the Queen featuring corgis. Many more have popped up since.

With this criticism, I’m not talking about cartoons that feature the corgis but the ones that revolved around them.

Honestly, this isn’t a case of cartoonists being lazy and unimaginative. It’s really hard to be original, unique, and irreverent with obit cartoons. In fact, after scratching around all day to come up with something unique and brilliant for CNN as a tribute to the Queen (a non-corgi cartoon), two other cartoonists duplicated that cartoon. That meant I had to come up with another cartoon for CNN. There went my Friday.

In all honesty, I too came up with a corgi idea on Thursday. I thought it was sweet and brilliant. I remembered how much my readers loved my cartoon of Betty White being greeted in Heaven by doggies. This corgi cartoon of mine was going to go over big time. Why it might even go viral. It was going to be the greatest cartoon anyone in the world had ever seen. Why, it was going to be totally unique and original. Nobody else would think of it, right? Wrong.

When I saw the first corgi cartoon after I roughed out my idea, I felt sick. I thought my cartoon was great and now I wouldn’t be able to do it. That other cartoonist was going to get all the credit and praise for being a genius, not me. I showed it to one of my colleagues who told me I should do it anyway. I didn’t wanna do that, but I still felt sick.

And then I saw the second corgi cartoon, and I felt a little less sick. Then I saw the third, and I stopped feeling bad that I wouldn’t get to draw my corgi cartoon. Then I saw a fourth corgi cartoon…and a fifth cartoon, and by the time I saw the sixth, I was totally over it.

And here’s another, and another, and another, and another, and another, and another, and another and another and, you get the idea.

Cartoonists will often rush to be the first with an idea, and I’ve done that myself here and there throughout my career. But if multiple cartoonists are doing the same idea or concept, it doesn’t matter who’s first. I’d rather not be in the club.

Some of the cartoonists who drew corgi cartoons don’t care enough to feel bad about being unoriginal. But to all those who do, don’t feel bad. It happens. I’m just glad it didn’t get me this time. And to the cartoonists who draw a corgi cartoon today and after, you do kinda suck. If you know the corgi idea was already done, then why do it? Sheesh!

I posted this on social media Thursday afternoon and I had several cartoonists contact me about it, a few who did draw corgi cartoons. A Canadian colleague emailed me yesterday saying “right on.” Another tweeted at me his corgi cartoon basically telling me to bite him. And another who had drawn a corgi cartoon texted me saying he didn’t expect to fall into a Yahtzee pit with his cartoon. I think most cartoonist know my poke was good natured.

As I mentioned, I almost Yahtzeed with the corgi and another idea, so it does happen to all of us. I was just fortunate to pull back in time before going over the cliff.

Note: A “Yahtzee” is when at least two cartoonists have the same idea.

God Save The Queen


As you know by now, Queen Elizabeth II died yesterday at the age of 96. Her reign of 70 years and 214 days is the longest for any British monarch. Unless you’re 71 or older, Elizabeth was queen for your entire life. Now begins the reign of King Charles III.

My ancestry is British. According to Ancestry.com, I’m 87 percent British. I’m also ten percent Irish so there’s some UK in there too. So I feel a bond with England, especially when it comes to music and comedy. Food, not so much. Who wants beans for breakfast?

Anyway, I like the monarchy. I like that it’s a constitutional monarchy. I admire Queen Elizabeth and believe in my heart she was good for the United Kingdom and the world. I admire her strength and resolve. And I don’t dread the reign of King Charles. Besides, it’s not like we have a choice in the matter. I think he’s going to be a good king. He had a great teacher. It could be worse. At least it’s not Andrew.

Trump and Tories


If our system to choose a president was like the United Kingdom’s in selecting a prime minister, then in 2023, the Republicans would most likely install Trump as president if they retake the House this November.

In the United States, the Republican Party consists of sycophants and Donald Trump chooses who will be the nominees in most elections. In the UK, the Tories made Liz Truss grovel for their votes.

Voters don’t directly elect their prime minister in the United Kingdom (which is made up of four nations, England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland). The majority party selects the prime minister and at this time, the Tories are the majority. The Tories are the conservatives.

Another difference between is that the United Kingdom isn’t simply a two-party system like ours. While Tories and Labour (liberals) are the two largest parties, the party in control usually needs help from one of the lesser parties to form a government.

One detail that is very similar between both nations is that the systems are fucked up.

In the United States, the Electoral College makes it possible for the president to be the candidate who didn’t win the popular vote. In fact, the Republican Party has only won the popular vote once since 1988. In case you’re counting, that’s 33 years, yet the GOP has taken the White House three times since.

Since we elect United States senators by state, and not by population, Republicans often control the Senate despite millions more Americans voting for Democrats. Democratic senate candidates outperformed Republican candidates in 2018, a year of the blue wave, by over 18 million votes, yet failed to win the Senate. In fact, the GOP actually gained seats in the Senate while the House fell to Democrats who gained 41 seats.

And in the House, districts are gerrymandered in what amounts to candidates choosing their voters instead of voters choosing the candidates.

And don’t get me started on how Republicans are making it harder for non-white Americans to vote. Our democracy is at risk.

The United Kingdom just selected its next prime minister and she’s Liz Truss. Actually, the UK didn’t select her, the Tories did. And the UK’s next prime minister won the job with only 60,339 votes. There are over 47 million eligible voters in the United Kingdom but Truss was selected by just 0.4% of them.

You can argue that since the Tories are the majority, then UK voters selected them to choose their next prime minister, though I’m sure when voters last went to the polls to choose Members of Parliament (MPs), most of them had never heard of Liz Truss. So, no. UK voters did not choose their next PM. Tomorrow, Truss and current PM, Boris Johnson, will travel to the Queen’s estate in Scotland where she will invite Truss to form a new government. Hopefully, by the time they get there, someone has informed the Queen who Truss is.

Voters may not get an actual say in any of this until 2025 unless Truss calls for an election. If she really wants to keep the job, I doubt she does that. And if Donald Trump becomes president (sic) again in 2024, the United States may never have a real presidential election ever again.

Another similarity between Tories and Republicans is that they always choose wankers.

Music note: I listened to Kaiser Chiefs and Foo Fighters.

Creative note: I don’t like to give away Easter eggs, but I was talking to my padawan Alexandra Bowman while making this and asked her for one reference. So, the Doctor Who Easter egg is from her.

Also, since the cartoon has been published, I’ve gotten more grief that the Number 12 bus does not go to Chiswick and I put the driver on the wrong side.

Thems The Breaks


In a column in today’s Guardian, Gaby Hinsleff writes that England’s Conservative Party “owes this country a groveling apology.”

She writes “It should hang its head in shame for foisting on us a man so wholly unfit for office that he had to be dragged from it kicking and screaming and threatening to burn everything to the ground. It should apologize for choosing a leader it knew to be a lightweight and a liar, and propping him up for three years at our expense long after its worst fears had been realized. But most of all, it should apologize for repeatedly underestimating what he was capable of when cornered, and how hard he would be to remove. Nor should it expect, having apologized, to be forgiven.”

Boris Johnson submitted his resignation this morning in a speech in front of 10 Downing Street, and Gaby wrote, “you could almost hear the country sigh with relief. It’s goodbye to the worst prime minister any of us has ever known, and frankly, good riddance. He has brought this country to its knees, and his only legacy will be the long painful years of clearing up the damage.”

When Johnson resigned this morning, he said “thems the breaks,” as if it’s just bad luck he has to resign, as though he’s a victim of circumstance. Boris Johnson refused to accept any blame. Out of the 55 Prime Ministers the UK has had, Boris Johnson is the worst.

55 of Johnson’s ministers resigned, forcing him out of office. The plan is for him to stay on until around September after the Tories find a replacement, but it’s questionable how he’s going to lead when nobody wants to be in his cabinet.

Voters in the UK don’t directly elect their Prime Minister. He’s chosen by the party in power. It would be as if the House majority here chose the president, so if we had the same system, the GOP could put Donald Trump back in the White House if they retake Congress this November.

And, that’s exactly what they would do because unlike the Conservative Party in the United Kingdom, which finally gave up on a failed horrible leader, our conservative party still consists of boot-licking, toadying sycophantic troglodytes who have turned the party of Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Eisenhower, and Reagan into a cult worshiping an orange clown.

When Donald Trump was impeached…the second time, only ten Republicans voted in favor. Only three in the Senate voted to convict. This was after he tried to overturn an election he lost by sending an angry mob of rabid white nationalist terrorists to attack Congress while it was certifying the 2020 election.

Today, he is still the party’s leader and presently the favorite to win its nomination in 2024. In fact, there’s speculation he’ll announce his presidential candidacy this month in order to distract, and maybe to stall, a prosecution.

Boris Johnson and Donald Trump have several things in common. Neither were qualified for their jobs. They’re both racists and pathological liars, neither can accept blame or fault, and they both have ridiculous hair. The two things they don’t have in common is that Boris has some sense and his party isn’t as cultish.

Another thing both “leaders” have in common is that they’re both the worst. Johnson is the worst PM in UK history and Donald Trump is the worst president (sic) in U.S. history. Some historians say he’s only the third worst, but I disagree.

The Tories actually put their nation before one person today. Even after trying to steal an election and implant himself as a fascist mango Mussolini, the GOP still worships at the altar of Trump. They’re still pushing his election lie.

Donald Trump spent his entire time in office grifting the nation and lying. He engaged in petty feuds and endorsed racists and pedophiles. He downplayed a pandemic and touted Clorox enemas as a solution. He groveled at the foot of fascist dictators while attacking our democratic allies. He had a net loss of jobs when he left office. Trump’s approval never rose above 50 percent during all four years of our national orange nightmare. We are still cleaning up after the Trump disaster and the GOP wants to hit us with it again before we’re finished.

I don’t know if the Conservative Party has any shame, but I know the GOP doesn’t. They owe this nation an apology, and they should not be forgiven.

The UK gets to say good riddance to Boris…in three months or so. In November, we should say “good riddance” to the entire Republican Party for putting a lying racist orange shitweasel before the nation.

And if voters do that, well then, thems the breaks.

Music note: I listened to The Beatles and a little Warren Zevon while drawing this.
