    Yesterday I saw a doormat with "the" classic image of Che on it. It was the kind of doormat with heavy brown natural bristles, the kind you wipe your feet on when coming from a muddy or snowy street.

    It was in a part of London known to be left wing, but the idea of the image on the doormat is ambiguous.
