    It lacks humour, which some consider to be an important element in a cartoon.

    A Caesar-like figure surrounded by sheeple. Funny?
    Tinkerbell and Figjam are missing in the cartoon.

    Comedy in political cartoons is just a device to stop people whining about being confronted with someone else’s opinion. It isn’t mandatory.

    Sometimes a bludgeon is appropriate.

    Hmmm, perhaps we have the makings of a play here. JK as Julius Caeser, the populist “man of the people”, which would make Don Brash Cato, insisting on limited government and strict discipline, and Phil Goff Pompey, the hapless and doomed man who wanted to be leader.

    Which means the real question is, who is Brutus?

    On a more positive note, at least it’s not another one about global warming… ;-)

    Actually Mark Anthony’s speech is all about dealing with a big lies in a political situation where you’re not allowed to expictly call it out… offhand, doesn’t map well with the details of NZ politics, or the cartoon, but still seems timely. Mind, I don’t see anyone falling on their sword when they get caught out here.

    I can identify John Key, but Phil Goff looks the same as Mallard,Cunliffe, Parker and the other ewes.

    As someone else said on Dimpost this morning, the thing about satire is the longer you think about it the less funny it is.
