JEREMY Paxman drew dozens of crude sketches of what he would do to David Cameron and Ed Miliband during last night’s TV interviews.
The doodles, which the interviewer scribbled while not listening to the party leaders’ pointless answers, have been hailed by critics as a ‘thrilling parade of cruelty’.
Art historian Helen Archer said: “As Cameron begins it’s a simple assault with a frying pan.
“The number of blows matches the number of times Cameron says that ‘some people choose zero-hours contracts’. So eight.
“But as Cameron moves onto the economy Paxman brings out the toys – a steamroller, a pair of angry Jack Russells and a toilet stuffed with explosives.”
She added: “The sketches of Miliband are less visceral. He is portrayed as an isolated figure about to fall down a hole or be attacked by a large bird.
“They capture the pathetic nature of the subject while preserving the artist’s cool detachment to his many terrible fates.”
