Satirical Cartoon: West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner By-election

A cartoon infographic, like those that are popular on the Internet these days. The lines are simple and the writing a little shaky, like David Shrigley or those birthday cards or XKCD.

It’s a bar chart, in black and white and cross-hatching. It’s labeled ‘West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner By-election Exit Poll’. The bars are:

Labour 200
UKIP 130
Tory 50
Green 45
Lib Dem 10
Residents against the wheelie bin 12
White Dee for Celebrity Big Brother 243,235

There’s still a copy of the Birmingham Mail on the floor with an explanatory ‘Low Turnout’ headline.
