Which raises another question: when is austerity not austerity? The answer's quite simple: when it's socialism for the One Percenters and the so-called market for everyone else.

And it's heartening to see those aware of lopsided transport priorities taking a stand in a light-hearted way. Even in the middle of winter.

So, here it is - the ante has been upped. Image is ©Kumara Republic Media but free to download and circulate. Also available as prints from CafePress.
