You may remember a story I did right at the start of 2005 about The Child, where the bald, sexless infant said "things are going to change", over and over again. After that story, something did change, but no one spotted it, and I have spent many nights hugging my sides and weeping as a result.
What changed was, I started drawing people with the full complement of fingers rather than three-fingered Simpsons hands. I only point this out because in looking for a book to read last night, I found an old bookmark from 2003, on which I had drawn one of those three fingered hands. It looked pretty strange, but after all, "strange" 'is just "change" spelt slightly differently.
My message of change has gone nationwide since then. I leave you with an alarming photograph from the Conservative Party conference earlier this year.
