Readers may remember that Conservative Home celebrated the election victory of the bearded Mariano Rajoy in Spain by granting imagining beards to David Cameron, George Osborne and other senior Tories.

At PMQs yesterday, the Prime Minister renewed the jibe he launched at Liam Byrne in the pre-election days of March 2010. (It was apparently coined by Byrne's own civil servants during his time as a Minister) -

"Let us have a look in detail at the appalling mess that the Prime Minister and Baldemort seem to find so funny"

- By saying -

"[The shadow welfare Minister] said that it is completely unacceptable that housing benefit has rocketed to £20 billion. This is what he said. Where is Baldemort? He is not at home today."

So in the spirit of our Spanish endeavour we give you three Conservative baldemorts, as above.  Readers will understand why we didn't feel it necessary to commission special illustrations of the Foreign Secretary, the Work and Pensions Secretary or Chris Grayling.
