David Cameron is an unconvincing oil rig worker

I totally forgot to put this up at the time, so here it is now.   David Cameron visited a Scottish oil rig in February.  I’m always amused by politicians dressing up as normal people.  It makes me think of classic kids’ TV show Mr Benn.  In case you don’t remember this 80s stalwart here’s an outline… Mr Benn would visit the be-fezzed shopkeeper who would dress him up.  Mr Benn would have a brief moment in an environment that fitted his costume, then he’d put his bowler hat back on and return to his life.  I like to imagine the shopkeeper is now employed somewhere in the civil service dressing them up.  I drew the shopkeeper watching his handiwork in a TV report.
