God, I look stoned in this oneIn a recent comment, someone has had a go about my current picture on this site making me look like a certain physically unattractive TV personality. I quite like it, myself, and several other Labour bloggers agree with me and have posted my smiling face on their own blogs, here and here, for instance. Other bloggers such as this one have suggested that I'd look better in black & white, but I'll treat that as a facetious comment and ignore it. My partner Linda agrees that it's a rubbish picture and is urging me to get a new one taken.

In the meantime here are some alternatives. Let me know if you think any of them should replace the current one:
The picture that best shows how I view myselfPerhaps that's why I looked stoned aboveMy best moment - I didn't wash my hand for a month
Arguing the case for Trident replacementMe relaxing in the privacy of my homeAfter a visit to my hair stylist
Proud of my family originsI quite fancy Diane Portillo (well, her money)Me after I've been spinning too much
Me, out on ABSO patrolMe in a more romantic momentEnjoying some foie gras and wine
On second thoughts maybe it's safer to stick with the current one ...

I think you mean the one where the caretaker-murderer looked like me.
