I’d know that back anywhere

The Australian, 9 March 2011

Posted in political cartoons, The Australian.


  1. I am analysing this cartoon for vce english and would like to know whether the man reading the news poll is a specific member of the labour party or just represents a powerbroker.
    thank you

  2. Ha! Looks like it’s back to the drawing board with my Wayne Swan caricature then…

    Just for the record, it’s “Labor Party” not “Labour Party”. It started off as Labour, but was changed to Labor int he early 1900s to identify with the American labor (American spelling) movement (I think this is the case – best google it if you’re putting it in your report) and thus endeth the lesson.

    …and the guy reading the Newspoll is Wayne Swan.
