It's a tricky thing topicality- as a cartoonist do you draw something based around the news, when you know that every other cartoonist is desperately trying to sell similar gags? Sometimes it's better to come up with a cartoon that won't have to compete against other similar gags- cue the desert island or psychiatrist couch.

However, I was lucky with this one which I think is in this week's Spectator magazine (it's on their website, but I haven't checked out the mag yet).

Perhaps it got through because it had a slightly different twist to the whole redacted furore? Who knows- cartoon editors are a tricky lot to second guess- but they're all wonderful-especially those who choose my stuff (I think I should shut up now).
