Steve Bell on the British General Election

Posted by on April 17th, 2010 at 7:12 PM

The longtime Guardian cartoonist talks about – and sketches – the leaders of Britain’s three main parties – Gordon Brown (Labour), David Cameron (Conservative) and Nick Clegg (Liberal Democrat, pictured above).

“The interesting thing about Dave,” Steve Bell says, “are the folds in his neck.” The Conservative party leader looks “orange” when he stands in front of a blue backdrop (see below). Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg has a “high forehead,” and “two chins in one.” Gordon Brown, meanwhile, “has bags under his bags,” but “quite sensual lips.”

The election, which at this point is too close to call, is scheduled for May 6th.
