I always did have trouble interpreting political cartoons, is the artist implying Thatcher’s place as a prominent female politician is threatened by Merkel’s rise to Chancellor?Or is the artist claiming Merkel has a history of jumping from cakes in skimpy clothing?
Anthony : who knows. The cartoons that Antony posts appear terribly clever if you're a like-minded lefty. However, they make little sense if a bit of historical and/or political perspective is injected. This latest nonsensical example is a case in point.
