Read ’em and weep

WITH a snap elec­tion (pun in­tended), car­toon­ist Oliver Pre­ston has had to make a fast turn­around to cre­ate his new set of po­lit­i­cal play­ing cards, ex­cel­lent for bridge, which have proved so pop­u­lar in pre­vi­ous years.

He’s cre­ated two packs, red and blue, and they fea­ture most on the cur­rent po­lit­i­cal scene, in­clud­ing Tim Far­ron, Ni­cola Stur­geon, Jeremy Cor­byn and Tories Theresa May and Am­ber Rudd. A strong con­tin­gent from the EU in­cludes Jean-claude Juncker, Don­ald Tusk, Michel Barnier, Guy Ver­hof­s­tadt and An­gela Merkel. Trumps to who­ever can guess the iden­tity of the Joker.

A pair of packs, which come in boxes, costs £12.50; high-qual­ity pre­sen­ta­tion boxes cost £29.50 (www.oliv­er­pre­ston.com).
