David Cameron political cartoon
Showing the PM , Ed Miliband , George Osborne , Ed Balls , Nigel Farage , Nick Clegg and Natalie Bennett all at sea in the run up to the 2015 UK General Election. Created for an opinion website homepage by Gary Barker.
The 100 day countdown has sounded before the 2015 UK General Election and the party dirty tricks departments go into overdrive. The UK Conservative Coalition Prime Minister, has an unsteady hand on the UK tiller while the Chancellor George Osborne bails out the leaking boat and Labour Opposition Leader battles with the UKIP leader Nigel Farage. Libdem leader Nick Clegg clings to a lifebelt while Labour Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls tries to make his way to the boat and Green Party leader Natalie Bennett finds herself adrift on a melting iceberg.
With more at stake in this poll than any other in living memory from the future of the NHS through to the very existence of the Welfare State to the UK's membership of the European Union. Whatever the result it is unlikely any party will win an outright majority, which means the destinct possibility of another five years of coalition government.
