People who are tired of politicians can now see their least favourite ones plastered on to the bottom of chamber pots.

Brighton businessman Adam Campbell decided he was fed up with politics having witnessed it first-hand running as a councillor and being involved in a number of spats with the city council.

Using this frustration as inspiration, the 51-year-old decided to found the Gzunder company to produce a range of ceramic chamber pots, featuring the faces of local, national and international politicians alongside an amusing satirical slogan.

The pots have gone down a storm with the product which features the face of Green council leader Jason Kitcat having sold out.

Local Labour group leader Warren Morgan also has made his way on to a pot.

So has the Conservative leader on Brighton and Hove City Council Geoffrey Theobald.

“We play no favourites – we also do ashtrays and dartboards. I am both physically and metaphorically above politics,” the 6ft 8in businessman said.

National party leaders also have the pride of their own pot, with Prime Minister David Cameron featured with the slogan: “We are all right in it together.”

UKIP boss Nigel Farage grins on a pot beneath the phrase: “I am coming to live next door to you.”

Mr Campbell added that another popular product has been dartboards featuring the face of former education secretary Michael Gove – and said he knows of teachers who have bought them. The inspiration for the pots came from his own battles with the council as well as a chamber pot featuring Napoleon at the Brighton Museum.

He said: “I have to be non-partisan – if you have been elected or convicted your face can be put on a pot.

“What I hear is politicians are starting to wonder if they are important enough to have their faces on their own pot.”

He added that it is too early to tell which new members of David Cameron’s cabinet will get the Gzunder treatment.

But he said he was happy to wait for them to “hang themselves with their own words”.

One of the latest products is Gzunder soap branded “the world’s first political soap”.

Mr Campbell said: “Why not send a bar to your elected representative if you feel they are washing their hands of their responsibilities?”

Reminds me of the old saying.......we need to change our politicians as often as we change a baby's nappy - and usually for the same reason....
