Do a Beckham, Tony

Politicians have been accused of turning off the electorate. To fight voter disinterest, perhaps they should consider following the latest fads.

Caricatures by Jesse Brown.


Tony Blair: Maybe football-star-cum-clothes horse David Beckham won't be the last of the Mohicans - if you want to get ahead ... get the clippers.


William Hague: It's the struggle that's captivating the newspapers (at least), 16 contestants, a desert island and 1m. But who will be the Survivor?


Charles Kennedy: You can't open a magazine, listen to a radio or watch a Labour election broadcast without encountering Geri Halliwell, she's queen of the headline-grabbing redheads.


Ann Widdecombe: Pearl Harbor may have bombed with the critics, but the 100m naval epic is already making waves and winning column inches.


John Prescott: The 1980s mullet, the best haircut named after a fish, is making a summer comeback, say style gurus. A knockout new look.
