    56 to “Hail to the chief”

    1. jimnarlene says:

      Brilliant, wearing their hypocrisy, for all to see.

    2. Skintybroko says:


    3. Cactus says:

      Ha ha ha, SO that’ll be the twa tories bowin’ down and afore thur new ‘Prime Minister Boris Johnson of the United Kingdom’… let THAT sink in

      Pure Blazin’ like

    4. Morgatron says:

      Hahaha, totally magic Chris. Scotlands two greatest hypocrites.

    5. Cactus says:

      Hey Mr Chris, ahm musically inspired by one of the T-shirts…

      SO THIS is a dedication to Ruth (et vous too Theresa)

    6. starlaw says:

      Well Done again Chris, this pair have more faces than a box of dice.

    7. Calum McKay says:

      Two hypocrites, one goal, feather their own nests!

      Mundell has never had a presence in England, or anywhere else for that matter. Davidson’s manufactured star is falling, as pee have twigged, their is no depth, no policies, just a mouth!

    8. Hamish100 says:

      Yip the two “we will resign” experts still in post now realising that to continue they will need to throw out any semblance of honesty and integrity (I know they never had any to begin with) .

      The Tory Brit puts the Little englander Boris in charge and still have the gall to say they put Scotland first.

      The big lie.

    9. Macjim says:


    10. Giving Goose says:

      Calum McKay – it is about feathering their nests but there is a deeper layer of contempt involved.
      Britishness is about exploiting people. Historically the Empire provided that opportunity via investments in exploitative Brit companies & business. Now that the Empire is dead, they have to exploit their own people. British and Exploitation go hand in hand.

    11. Abulhaq says:

      With those Scotch Unionists loyalty is fundamental. Parcel of rogues behind whoever’ll give us a job.

    12. Socrates MacSporran says:

      I just love that wee post on the Rev’s twitter feed, Colonel Yadaftie implying that Nicola was installed as First Minister.

      Conveniently forgetting, along the way, that a certain Ruth Davidson stood against her when Nicola was nominated as FM and had to win the support of a majority of Holyrood MSP’s – only 15 of whom – not even the entire Scottish Toerags’ elected membership – supported the bold Colonel.

      Both individually and collectively, the Colonel and Fluffy have mair faces than the toon knock, and fewer scruples and principles than a Groucho Marx character.

      A pair o’ rogues indeed.

    13. Ian McCubbin says:

      Trouble is while a great cartoon Boris the Terrible is just that, and will do us all il.

    14. Bob Mack says:

      Both eminently qualified to serve the new Tory PM.

      Capable of servility, hypocrisy, and duplicity, unmatched by any other politicians on these islands.

      They would be ideal colonial governors for any empire.

    15. Shug says:

      I am sure somone on the bbc will ask them a hard question
      Only kidding
      Not to appear on call kaye any time soom, no dark money here

    16. frogesque says:

      Chequebook servility.

      Are you YES yet?

    17. Abulhaq says:

      Listening to the trite trash issuing from the English candidates for PM, Mundell could be in with a real chance. Whoever wins they’ll be Farage puppets. Old England is truly on skid row. Our golden opportunity. Be vicious Nicola!

    18. Frank Gillougley says:

      Thank you for making the plain simple truth graphic, Chris.
      Pictures paint a thousand words of pure unadulterated shite.

      I have to say however, that I for one am not going to sit through 2 months of the Tory party endlessly discussing the Tory party (via their toadying establishment mouthpiece the BBC) as if who they eventually elect actually mattered one jot to this colonial outpost. No more. I’ve had it.

      I look forward to hearing about Scottish political developments through WoS and all the contributors.

    19. Les Wilson says:

      Cracked it again Chris, brilliant.

    20. Famous15 says:

      The goalkeeper trips on his laces.The goal is wide open. WHAT’S THIS? The striker is not of the preferred description. Stu retweets ad infinitum,the ball bursts the game is a bogey,dreams shattered,99.999999% do not understand what it is about etc etc

      Nae tinfoil needed cos our enemies are cunning and we are patsies.

      Get a grip!

    21. galamcennalath says:

      U-turners gotta do what u-turners always do.

    22. Clootie says:

      🙂 I could actually hear her voice in my head as I read that speech ballon.

    23. Abulhaq says:

      A shiver ran through the Scotch Unionists, looking for a spine to run up…..a paraphrase of an observation by Oliver Brown.

    24. HandandShrimp says:

      Ruth’s volte face is the funniest political thing this week. I bet she may have said something somewhat more colourful in private.

    25. Republicofscotland says:

      Good one Chris, and oh so true.

    26. jfngw says:

      Why do shops not sell ‘Glad To See You Go’ cards, they are more than appropriate currently.

      Maybe the accolades are correct and Theresa May did her best, it’s just her best was shite.

      It’s not been a good look for women, two Prime Minister’s and both only able to shed tears for themselves. Can we stop this nonsense that women are more empathetic than men, they are no different and the two that made it to the top have been self centred egotists.

    27. Brian Doonthetoon says:

      Pro-indy march in the Netherlands – now!

    28. Macart says:

      That’s a keeper. 😀

    29. Muscleguy says:

      Not all women leaders are like that. Post the Christchurch attacks I have been extremely proud to be a Kiwi as well as a Scot. My PM is Jacinda Ardern. Look on and weep Theresa for you will never have a photo of you hugging someone beamed onto the Burj Khalifa.

      You will never call a technology summit in Paris and extract promises from Facebook and Twitter backed by some real big hitters.

      Many of the injured and bereaved in Christchurch have been granted citizenship by special powers. She said, you have become ours in the aftermath. That was those words made concrete. It said you are so much us have this so you can never be forced to leave us.

      If only Nicola had such powers.

    30. dakk says:

      Brilliant Chris.

      You captured that frightened rabbit expression on Mundell’s face to a tee.

    31. The state of the North Brutish branch of the Conservative and Unionist party,

      summed up by Marx,

      `Those are my principles, and if you don’t like them… well, I have others`.

      Scottish Cup final today Scotland`s glorious Heart of Midlothian Football Club V Celtic,Hampden 3.00, and Glasgow Warriors play Leinster in the Rugby Pro 14 final,Parkhead 6.30,

      good luck to both the Edinburgh and Glasgow teams 😉

    32. Davosa says:

      Thank you Scot.


      This is who we are,


    33. galamcennalath says:

      Brexit has destroyed two prime ministers. Who’s next for the mincer?

      The next one has two choices, as I see it …. one, act the goat, kick the can, dream of cakes, then bite the dust, possibly taking the Tory Party with them …. or two, be more honest. Personally, I’m not sure which way Boris would play it. If he believes himself to be a statesman deserving of a prominent place in history, he may be more honest. If he doesn’t want to be the destroyer of the Tory Party, he may decide to lay out the cards as they should always have been.

      He will be deceitful to win the PMship, that’s par for the course. Then he may just opt for reality rather than fantasy.

      ‘No deal’ is too awful to actually contemplate. History will not be kind to any PM who takes that route. It should be taken off the table.

      The electorate is probably (despite the best efforts of the gutter media) more informed than they were three years ago. The next PM has the get out of handing the problem back to the electorate – the negotiated deal, or forget Brexit.

      Actual withdrawal is only the beginning, if that is England’s choice. There will be years of trade talks and the whole question of what form that takes still has to be trashed out. It could take all sorts of forms. Future general elections will probably be fought in it. An ambitious PM has ample opportunities to make a name for themselves.

      Scotland? I have always thought the transition period after withdrawal was the ideal time for IndyRef2. (I just thought we might be there by now!)

    34. auld highlander says:

      Why does two faced come to mind?

      As for Boris………. he wouldn’t look out of place behind a pair of oxen ploughing a field.

      my apologies to plowmen and oxen everywhere.

    35. John Lowe says:

      Brilliant ????

    36. Simon Curran says:

      Come Independence there needs to be a whole art gallery dedicated to Chris’s work. Brilliant stuff.

    37. Josef Ó Luain says:

      Methinks the Tory Party is already breathing-its-last and that a Boris victory will prove the final-straw. It’s only the difficulty of accepting this irrevocable fact by the population i.e. that a central feature of the decrepit British Establishment has consumed itself, that stands between us and democratic progress. We’re waiting for the Old to die before the New can be born.

    38. Socrates MacSporran says:

      Just a wee wicked thought. Might not 6 June be a good day on which to call Indyref2 and demand a Section 30 order.

      A demob happy Theresa, probably pleased to hand Boris and the Wannabees a ticking time bomb could always say: “Fuck Them, why not,” and sign it off – leaving Boris or whoever to deal with the fall-out.

      In any case, the Westminster bubble dwellers would be so pre-occupied with the succession they would be unable to mount a serious defence of their precious union.

      Worth a thought. I feel.

    39. cynicalHighlander says:

      D day in other words Socrates.

    40. bittie45 says:

      Nice one Chris.

      Now that Repeating The Same Mistakes And Expecting Different Results May is definitely definitely going then I wonder what Boris (shudder) has in store for us should he scramble into power.

      In that case also WE should all panic!

    41. Cubby says:

      Great toon.

      Payday – so second donation made to fundraiser.

    42. jfngw says:


      I never wrote all leaders are like that, it was not actually the point I was making. It was the narrative from the past that thngs would be run better if there were more women in power. Well there are now and things are no better.

      It was always a nonsense narrative, just having kind words doesn’t really cut it. It’s a bit like saying it is kinder to starve people to death, current Tory policy, rather than being cruel and gassing them.

    43. yesindyref2 says:

      I think a lot of non-political people will have noticed the utterly depraved sycophantism and hypocrisy of so many Tories.

    44. Tony Hay says:

      I doubt Boris will make the final 2, as the skeletons in the cupboard will not allow enough MPs to get him on the final ballot.
      It will be a brexiteer for sure and Raab seems the most obvious choice,it doesn’t matter which remainer gets to the final the gammon membership will vote for the “no deal” option.
      A Gove or Liddington steady as you option as a compromise option wont work,so its Raab.

    45. Ghillie says:

      Oh but we do.

      Even Ruth has to laugh at this one Chris =)

      Well… a bit nervously maybe.

    46. geeo says:

      I read somewhere the other day that indyref legislation may start at Holyrood next week (i could be imagining that, so do not quote me).

      That means (if accurate) that Ruth Davidson only has a few more days until her promise to walk her Tory MSP’s out of the Scottish Parliament in protest.

      There’s next weeks toon for Chris ready to draw already.

      Imagine FMQ’s

      Question 1, Ruth Davidson.

      RD: asks question…

      Nicola: “should you not be texting me your question from the car park”??

    47. Ghillie says:

      geeo, I can actually hear Nicola saying that 🙂

    48. Jack Murphy says:

      Tory Party members voting for the next Prime Minister.

      There are 124,000 members of the UK Tory Party.
      That’s 124,000 out of the 47 million or so people that comprise the British electorate – about a quarter of 1% !

      One in 400 of us will have any say in the election of a new PM at a crucial moment in the United Kingdom’s destiny. Some democracy!
      Now we know what “taking back control” means.

      Control of Scotland and it’s people by a minute Tory clique.

    49. Dr Jim says:

      But is it not correct that the next Tory prime minister whoever that is doesn’t need to bring the withdrawal bill to parliament at all, just laugh and wait until default no deal kicks in

      I’m not sure if there’s any law saying the UK government have to negotiate anything with anybody, and if they want a no deal Brexit which is very popular in England at the moment amongst the Farage lot would that not be the way to go about it if you were a Tory and wanted to see off the Nigel Farage party

      Has anybody seen these Farage rallies, his supporters are screaming war and craziness and he’s doing his Trump level best to incite them to doing it while standing back and saying *Ooh I never said it the people did*

    50. chicmac says:

      And yet some folk still vote for them.

      We need new words to describe the UK government.




    51. Artyhetty says:

      Just excellent Chris. Hit the nail on the head. Not much more to say, for once, except following orders for money, and having no principles, like this pair of opportunists, can’t be a good feeling quite frankly. Selling your soul to the devil, no thanks.

    52. Marcia says:

      Very accurate summary, that cartoon.

    53. twathater says:

      The detail on the muddles face is superb Chris brill as usual , I am really disappointed that tRuthless and the muddle are not throwing their hats into the ring .

      I mean before 2014 ref were we not constantly being assailed with LEAD US DON’T LEAVE US by our bestest friends southwards SURELY THIS WOULD BE THE IDEAL OPPORTUNITY TO PROVE THEIR LOVVVVVVE , and don’t they consider tRuthless to be the messiah , I think she should go for it

      or would they be worried that being Scottish they would need to nail the furniture down because you can’t trust the Scots , ACCORDING TO RUTH

    54. Cactus says:

      The images of David & Ruth will soon fade from our screens

      See them from behind darkened windows, fade to filter

      Tory and Labour are done for, in Scotland

    55. Cactus says:

      A similar thing happened to Marty, but he brought it back

      Neither Labour or Tory have real LOVE of and for Scotland
