Gordon Brown cartoon: Trouble with the Observer

I was disappointed to open the new-look Observer newspaper yesterday to see that they have dropped the spot cartoons by Robert Thompson and, particularly, Andy Riley's very funny Roasted strip.

For new-look, read cut-backs in these troubled times. And when it comes to cuts, cartoons are often the first casualty. Anyhoo, for what it's worth, we've written an opinion piece on this over at the Bloghorn

Roasted has been a key part of the Observer magazine since 2002. I recommend the Roasted book, which kept me amused at Christmas a couple of years ago. Hopefully, it'll resurface somewhere else.
