Those of you who subscribe to the New Statesman (and why wouldn't you?) will be familiar with the weekly political lookalike*. Eric Pickles, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, is our current obsession. And if you want to know what led us to drawing on our thumbs, read Kevin Maguire's latest column.

Send your Eric-a-likes, or other suggested lookalikes, to editorial@newstatesman.co.uk.

(* There's some more highbrow stuff in the magazine too. Honest.)
