Politicians get plastered!

Less than two weeks before an election, Prime Minister Tony Blair, Conservative leader Michael Howard and Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy have all been cast as knee-high plaster characters.

The trio are decked-out in their political party colours acting out their policies, said the digital television gardening channel, UKTV Style Gardens, who released the models.

"There is a gnome for every political persuasion. The exquisite Tony Blair model is digging around for non-existent weapons of mass destruction," a statement said.

"For those with an influx of snails and other garden beasties there is the scary Michael Howard gnome holding a "Keep Out" sign and for the more relaxed, there's a charming carrot-topped fellow sitting on a fence supping from a glass of ginger beer."

The channel has made only 10 sets of the political gnomes to be won in an online competition, but a spokesman said demand was strong and they were considering mass producing them.

Now I like to be a fair person so where are the gnomes for
Caroline Lucas and Keith Taylor, and Roger Knapman, and Robert Kilroy-Silk?

So in keeping with the theme of the gnomes acting out their policies, any ideas anyone?

Now I’m not expecting you to run off and make a gnome, take a photo and send it to me, no, just give me some action… if you see what I mean.
