Remember when Uncle Helen attacked the country's cartoonists for being too cruel to her.
Well, in yet another echo between Britain and New Zealand, comes UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
He says the cartoonists here make him look too fat!
The Independent notes the leader's vanity, the Daily Telegraph notes problems cartoonists have with Brown's face, and the Daily Mail also joins in the fun.
I am sure that as Britain's economy implodes and he and his government becomes increasingly unpopular, a few words about how fat he is will be the least of Brown's worries.
I am also sure that Britaion's cartoonists will now, just for kicks, make him look even fatter.
Indeed, I am sure New Zealand's cartoonists just stepped up their cruelty of our former Dear Leader just to spite her, with Granny Herald's Rod Emmerson being a prime and excellent example!
