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).
