These political cartoons were hung in Old Parliament House. They appealed to me.
If you live outside Australia [or inside Australia but live in a black hole] would like an explanation, let me know in the comments.

The only recorded private protest? Wow.
Love those cartoons too, Miss Julia, the love child of Mr Sqiggle and Miss Jane. 😀
William Cooper certainly lived in different times. I never knew that.
I love the way good political cartoonists get right to the heart of an issue, and pull no punches.
I am amazed that political cartoonists can say, using a few words and a couple of images, something that would take me ages to express — and still never get right to the heart of the issue.
William Cooper certainly seemed like a wonderful man.
