Lyndon Hood: Vote Colonel Blimp For Welfare Reform

Blimp For Welfare Reform

Lovingly ripped off from David Low

In the years prior to World War Two ex-pat New Zealand cartoonist David Low (1891-1963) created the character of Colonel Blimp – conservative ex-army gentleman, bather and oxey moron. The following is based on part of 'Lows Topical Budget' from the Evening Standard of 2 November 1935. (A little more on Low – and Blimp – in this 2009 Werewolf article.)

David Low, Colonel
Blimp, parody, welfare, new zealand, election 2011, nzvotes,

For those who prefer their parodied images more photographic, here's one I prepared earlier:
