Just when you thought British politics couldn’t possibly get any more farcical, the newly unelected Prime Minister, Theresa May announces the appointment of Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary. While it was widely expected he’d get a role in cabinet, the smart money was on a ministerial position of little significance or power, such as Minster for Culture. However, May stunned the world by giving the role of the UK ambassador to the world to a man who spent the last month shredding the UK’s 43-year relationship with the EU. But that’s not the only reason Bojo was such a surprise choice.

So, much so that one photographer, Kathy Tipping has made them into something of an art form. But what got her started? “I have always loved the artwork and photography on film imagery, the use of succinctly determining and relevant snappy taglines in cinema and classic quad posters,” she says. “Secondly, I have a real love for surreal, absurdist or just plain childishly silly, but intelligent humour – amongst my comic heroes are Monty Python, The Goodies, Father Ted, the IT Crowd, Mighty Boosh, This is Jinsy, Mitchell and Web, Count Arthur Strong, The Fast Show, Spaced & Simon Pegg Cornetto Film Trilogy – all of whom share an often off-kilter, ludicrously daft but subtly clever slant which tickles my sense of humour in particular. I’m also very inspired through my familiarity the parody writing of my musical hero, Neil Innes, the singer/songwriter, of Monty Python Fame, The Rutles, (Beatles Parody), The BBC series The Innes Book of Records – and Raggy Dolls theme music! – he uses the farcical nature of life and politics in his fantastic song repertoire and I see him as my muse in many respects.”




Below you’ll find some of her best, along with one lampooning Angela Eagle by her partner James Murray, and a couple of bonus posters discovered on Facebook. With the Brexit fiasco being such comedy gold, we’re sure they’ll be plenty more to come.
