Topical cartoons: A look back at 2012

I don't know about you, but I'm a little "review of the year" fatigued, so I'll spare you a look back at my cartooning highlights of 2012 and offer instead some topical gags from the past 12 months.

We had the usual winter weather ...
Followed, of course, by a hosepipe ban ...


Britain celebrated the Queen's Diamond Jubilee ...


... amid more extreme weather events in the summer ...
 

But the Olympics was the story of the year ...


There was a new addition to the London skyline ...

 

A government minister prompted a fuel panic ...

There were teething problems with technology ...


A new Archbishop of Canterbury was chosen, via a long and drawn-out process ...

We said farewell to The Dandy comic in printed form after 75 years ...

 

And, as ever, there was some very strange stuff that came out of nowhere ...
Have a happy 2013, everyone!
