The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has announced the appointment of Neil Kinghan as Interim Director General of the Commission for the next six months ... er

Forgive me, but those of you who know me will know that I'm a simple soul, so please could I have some help. Let me think. Over-arching equality bill, just starting its passage, important moment for equality and human rights, scarcely a more important moment for strong and highly respected leadership ... hmmmm. I'm struggling with this, any ideas?!

I cite as evidence the failure of the govt to ratify UN convention in full, children excluded from equality Bill, one tax law for MPs somthing else for the rest of us, detention without trial, extensive brainwashing programme through Britain's got talent . . . need I go on?

I love this cartoon - you've made my Friday.
