Last week, a man on his hands and knees pushed a pink toy pig along the streets of south London with his nose. Mark McGowan, aka The Artist Taxi Driver, crawled the four miles from King’s College Hospital in Camberwell (where he is currently being treated for cancer) to Downing Street as a protest over the government’s NHS reforms, which McGowan says amount to privatisation of the NHS. The pig (pigs at the trough, geddit?) and McGowan arrived at No 10 to hand in a petition. Sadly, the PM had already trotted off. Rebecca Taylor
