Cumbria Day

It has been a good week for cartoonists, with horse meat turning up in everything and the pope resigning (rumours that Tony Blair is taking on the role is untrue as he considers it a step down).

Some of this appears in this week's Westmorland Gazette. Not the pope, unfortunately, as the Gazette doesn't yet have a Vatican correspondent.

The other three stories were more snow, high levels of gambling and Cumbria Day. The latter was a superb marketing exercise in which the entire population of Cumbria went to Westminster to lobby government ministers to do something or other.

Here are the ideas I pitched to my steamed editor
