Satirical Cartoon: Ukips in Birmingham by Matt of The Telegraph

A man in a jumper sits in a large armchair in a very traditionally decorated large semi-detached house. He’s reading the Evening Mail, he has it open on his lap and we can read the headline ‘Poor Ukip performance in Birmingham’.

His wife is carrying one cup of tea — in a cup and saucer — towards him.

He says: “it seems Birmingham decided it already had enough fruitcakes and loonies on the council.”

Then everyone retweets it as it “nails it”.

His new book about visiting every seaside pier in England and Wales — Pier Review — has been described as “On the Road meets On the Buses”, it's out now. Jon wrote and directed the first ever piece of drama to be performed on Twitter and founded the famous blog Birmingham: It's Not Shit.
