Can anyone list all the tabs?
Cliffe's was Angela Merkel with Nazi salute lording it over the Acropolis.
What were the others? Any photos would be great!

Man: Name,please?
AM: Angela Merkel
Man: Nationality?
AM: German
Man: Occupation?
AM: No, I'm only staying a few days.

Dunno who did what but Cliffe's Merkel looked extremely professional.

Another three were:
Gove in a GCSE fail box
Bradley Wiggins and Geri Halliwell on a union flag taxi.
Neil Armstrong at the gates of Heaven

Commercial Square was also Merkel surfing a Euro wave. First year I've been able to get up close to a tab and was really impressed by all the skill, detail and humour used.
Well done Commercial !

I was perplexed by the Bradley Wiggins/ Halliwell tab - who was the bloke depicted in front of them ? And why are they enemies of bonfire ?

Yes Brixtonbelle, you and me both wondering who the suit was, various guesses at our end have been, Coe, Call me Dave, Cleggy... any more? and why put them together? There was lots of Team GB on the tableau too.
Merkel was brilliant, well done to all involved in that.

Why thank you, but they were perfectly complemented by a beautifully crafted Mrs Merkel
