Cartoon: Abbey Road Jihadists.

This cartoon by Blower from The Telegraph shows a group of armed Jihadists walking across a pedestrian (or zebra) crossing as a police officer leans out of a police vehicle, which has stopped to let them cross.

Of course, the cartoon is based on the iconic cover of the Beatles' Abbey Road album. The message seems to be that Jihadists are now walking the streets of London (and the rest of Britain), and there's nothing the police can do about it. Today's Times cartoon by Gary Barker has a similar theme.

The third Jihadist is walking barefoot, just like Paul did on the original cover, helping to fuel the 'Paul is dead' conspiracy theory.
