Satirical cartoon: Demolition
Exterior of Birmingham Council House – you can tell it is as the cartoonist has drawn roughly the neo-Venetian curves, but has also added a sign that says ‘Birmingham City Council’. There’s a smaller sign that says ‘Improvement Panel Meeting’.
There are two chaps in hard harts and hi-vis. One is holding a piece of paper that says ‘demolition order’, the other holds a newspaper that says ‘Kerslake report latest’.
“Yes, this is it,” says the second, “ugly, not fit for purpose, out of date and causing a huge blockage to progress. Bring on the wrecking ball.”
