My third in this glorious series of ‘Things I’d like to see in the media’ is entirely out of left field. I want artistically interesting political cartoons.
I know it’s somewhat expected of me as a conservative to say that everything was better in the 1800s or whatever, but when was the last time you saw a political cartoon in Australia that wasn’t a hastily drawn, vaguely sketchy affair?
If you can’t read the text in the cartoon here, Disraeli is scribbling on the wall ‘Libberals 368. Torys 290. Makes Tory majority 25.’ The police officer says: ‘Now, then, youngster. You’ve no call to be chalking that wall, and if you must do a sum, you might as well do it right!’
