As we saw during the shadow cabinet elections, MPs are not averse to waving their researchers in the direction of Photoshop Microsoft Paint. The missive below from a Labour backbencher, likening Messrs Cameron, Clegg, Osborne and Alexander to China’s Gang of Four, was dispatched with a doctored Central Committee-style image.

“It was rather ill advised for new Tory MP Dan Byles (North Warwickshire) to wave his little red book around at PMQ’s and argue that Chairman Mao Tse Tung would support the coalition’s austerity measures. Mao’s sick policies resulted in mass starvation and economic and cultural ruin for China. Will Dave’s Gang of Four (Cameron, Osborne, Clegg & Alexander) lead the UK down a similar ideologically driven disastrous path?”

With this kind of humour, Scrapbook is pleased to see MPs take their cue from the blogosphere.

But perhaps there are more suitable candidates for the framed picture?
