My favourite cartoons are those of a gentle British cartoonist who called himself 'Pont' and who drew for Punch in the 1930s.
This is one is from a series called 'The British Character" and is typical.
Pont would no doubt have enjoyed Kate Fox's 'Watching the English"
Cartoons - particuarly Oliphant's cartoons in the New York Times - put current affairs marvellously into perspective and elegantly skewer some disseembling politico at the same time.
