We’re in Oslo, Norway for a weekend exploration 🙂 I’d thought of this comic a few days ago but was pushed more to make it when I was at the airport and saw a group of girls in hijabs walking by, laughing and chattering amongst themselves and it just pushed the point to me, I have never in my life felt threated by someone in Islamic dress. But I know what kind of people I have felt threatened by, and frankly, I know how many of them dress, and they’re not wearing hijabs!
Part two of three.
UPDATE: Hi guys, I’ve decided not to finish this comic, so I shall not be creating a part three. This is because of how poorly received this comic has been. After posting it on Reddit, I received a great deal of backlash concerning me over exaggerating the wickedness of Tories as well as complaints of “now you’re just making stuff up.” Along with the usual insults including those that I can’t draw (yeah, I know) and that my handwriting is terrible (again, I know).
To clarify what this comic was supposed to be, it was meant to be a three parter, after seeing yet more people hurting from sanctions, and Tories saying that we should just stop listening to the Scots and kill off the Barnett formula (the same old rhetoric), I wondered what would happen if they just kept on going trampling people until there was no one left to trample. I stress that I do realise this is not something that is going happen, it was an absurdism. Upon having this thought, it then moved on to this scene of May and Johnson looking over the rubble and reminiscing over the good times of trampling people when they still could. The thought made me chuckle, I thought it’d make a funny comic. Apparently, I was wrong.
After this was made apparent to me, I’ve chosen not to bother with the final punch line six panels because, honestly, after so much being told off, I just don’t have the motivation or enthusiasm anymore. Besides, I have a joke in my head involving popcorn and that seems much funnier than what’s going on in Westminster right now.
Am I the only one who feels utterly useless here?
For this comic, I figured I’d be using four or five flags, then I looked up a list of terrorist attacks so far in 2016 and my heart broke.
UPDATE 1 – 25th July 2016 – Added Germany.
UPDATE 2 – 28th July 2016 – Added Japan and Syria (which really ought to have been in there from the beginning).
UPDATE 3 – 5th August 2016 – Added India.
Well, we’ve been told “Brexit means Brexit” by the new Prime Minister in London, and we’ve been told there can be “no separate Scottish EU deal” by the new Chancellor in London. Two people Scotland didn’t vote for, insisting on decisions Scotland didn’t vote for. So really, there is only one choice they are forcing us to make, whether we want it or not.
I really wasn’t sure whether to include France in this or not, but ultimately decided that they haven’t outright said they won’t accept us, just said they’re not ready to negotiate with us while the situation remains as us being part of the UK. That, and I just kind of hope France will ultimately see us as a friend soon 🙂
