Satirical Cartoon: Local and EU elections
Councillor John Lines (he looks like a fat Jimmy Greaves) is in his old Lord Mayor’s uniform — he’s holding up a Tory election leaflet that says ‘No more garden tax’ and is berating a group of dustmen. The dustmen are dressed like the dad in My Fair Lady except they have some Nazi uniform bits (maybe one has a cap, another an armband).
“But you dressed us up like this.” one of the binmen is saying.
Sneaking past towards the Birmingham Council House, which is draped in a banner that says ‘Local and EU Elections Today’ — are some actual Nazis, with BNP, UKIP rosettes on riding a wheelie bin. Farage is pushing the bin and grinning — while slurping from a pint obviously.
A local newspaper reporter ‘Press’ card in the brim of his trilby hat is watching Lines and writing. He has a copy of the Evening Mail with the headline ‘Council binmen like the Gestapo‘.
