Judge Dread: Judging the Dark Tories

Mike and his commenters over on Vox Political have this piece, http://voxpoliticalonline.com/2015/10/09/beware-the-dark-tories-have-come-to-judge-you/ noting the similarity between the Tories’ stance, physical, political and moral, and those of the Dark Judges, the archenemies of the ultimate lawman, Judge Dredd, from the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, 2000 AD.

It also struck me too, several months ago, that there was a certain similarity in attitude between Ian Duncan Smith, the minister for chequebook genocide, and the leader of the Dark Judges, Judge Death. So I drew cartoon the below.

IDS Judge Death

If you can’t read it, Judge Ian Duncan Death is saying, ‘The crime isss poverty. The sentenssse isss death’. And the caption reads ‘The Tories. You cannot kill what does not live’.

With all due respect Dredd and the art and script robots, who created and drew him.

I think this is fair comment. After all, poverty is the only crime the Tories seem really to care about, and their policy does seem to consist in criminalising, punishing and killing those guilty of it.
