I’m very sorry to hear this, but I suppose it’s yet another sign of the times. I agree with Gordon’s comments though, this election year has been very interesting indeed and most editorial cartoonists should be awash in great content for their cartoons. It’s just a shame that the papers can’t seem to keep staff cartoonists on these days.
