BRAINWASHED
Jobsworths

Yet another of Swasie’s hilarious cartoon books has emanated from his acerbic pen, via Jeremy Mills, highlighting the buffoons who exist among the Nation’s ‘Jobsworth’ fraternity. As usual, Swasie pulls no punches as he depicts the unsympathetic conduct that prevails among some of those given power and authority but who are sadly devoid of discretion or initiative as they carry out their duties of rule and law enforcement to the absolute letter.

With a foreword by the former High Sheriff of Merseyside Mr Michael Potts and an enthusiastic endorsement by none other than the legendary Gerry Marsden (of the world famous Gerry and the Pacemakers), Swasie’s book is a must that is sure to highly amuse all who venture through its book’s pages.
