It was “All aboard the Krazy Train” again as Kaya headed up to Manchester on October 4th to share his latest painting of David Cameron (sporting his new “PigGate” tee shirt) with over 80,000 good-natured, noisy anti-austerity protesters as they marched through Manchester city centre, doing their best to drown out the opening events of the nearby Conservative Party annual conference with drums, whistles, jeers and *coughs* fruity insults.

Next stop on Kaya’s Party Conference Tour will be the SNP conference in Aberdeen. Stay tuned for news and photos next week…
