Beware! The Dark Tories have come to JUDGE you!


This one will probably appeal only to comics fans, but it made This Writer giggle.

Certain commentators have taken an interest in the posture adopted by certain of the entities inhabiting the Conservative Party conference this year.

It seems they look like the four Dark Judges from the hit 2000AD comic series Judge Dredd.

According to the above image, this would make George Osborne improbably equivalent to Judge Fire, and Theresa May would be – perhaps more appropriately – Judge Fear.

The other two Dark Judges are left as they appeared in the original image, but we can have fun imagining who would take their place, among the current crop of Tories.

As Judge Mortis, whose touch brings decay, perhaps we could substitute Jeremy Hunt?

Of course there can be no doubt who should take the crown as Judge Death, for whom everybody is guilty of “the crime of life”.

It can only be Iain Duncan Smith.

    Gideon Osborne is pigeon-toed.

      Honestly, that wouldn’t be the top of my list of his faults.

    Good spoof of them, they certainly are the dark judges and we all know who Judge Death is!

    I have to confess that when I saw Osborne stood like that the first thing that came to me was the episode of Blackadder the Third “Sense and Senility”, where there are two actors training the Prince to strike a pose and roar.

      “How far apart were their legs?”
      “That far.”
      “And their nipples?”
      “THAT far!”
