Veg out

A horticultural theme for this week's Westmorland Gazette cartoon candidates.

Venerable organisation Cumbria In Bloom - which celebrates the best towns and villages in the area - is suffering a shortfall in its finances.

And Brockhole's famous, 110-year old monkey puzzle tree has finally been cut down, despite protests. The National Park Authority says it's been done in order to make the garden more in line with designer Thomas Mawson's original intentions. Complete with adventure playground.

None of which is as exciting as the US Presidential Election but that's the lot of the local cartoonist. Compensate by making Your Vote Count in the comments box below and say which cartoon you think should grace today's front page.

There are no exit polls, no unnecessary chads, no vote rigging … simply head straight to my website to see if you were right.
