Satirical cartoon: the cuts, the cuts
A man in a suit with a badge on that says ‘Sir Albert Bore, Leader of the Council’ is at the enquiries desk of the Library of Birmingham – you can tell that because of the sign.
Further behind the counter are empty shelves, marked ‘Sports And Lesiure’, ‘Accoutancy’, ‘Children’s Services’ and so on.
A fat bloke – Eric Pickles – is in the background with a wheelbarrow of books and cash and football and food.
Sir Albert asks the librarian, “have you any books on standing up to the Tory government?”
The caption reads “Shhhh.”
