It’s your fault (yes, you).


Political elections are always taking place somewhere around the world. Have a look through the tsunami of on-line media outlets and you’ll find many reports of elections which are about to take place or have just happened.

Ever since man was clubbing animals for food, various people have put themselves out there as being the one who should lead their group and be in charge of the local cave, district, state or nation.

So I was thinking a bit about this particular type of person, and wondering how I could create a cartoon on their evolution.

I made notes of my thoughts as I pieced together a picture, and,,,,,,, well, , , it led to this instead of my usual cartoon.

Something different. I hope you like it…..

160731 The Modern Tribe


Homeless people are in a hopeless situation. It is virtually impossible to climb out of that world without help. Regardless of how they became homeless, a majority did not choose that life style. Circumstances beyond their control, and possibly bad decisions, lead them to this hopeless situation.

Various agencies and organisations help with clothes, temporary shelter, meals and other basic needs of the homeless. But these limited resources are only able to give part relief to the symptoms of the situation.

It is our politicians who hold the answer. They are the ones who can initiate action that, not only gives far more effective relief to the symptoms but, takes preventative action which minimises the number of people becoming homeless in the future.

We’ve just had an election for both houses of our parliament. Maybe I’m stupid, but I listened to a lot of the political soap-boxing during the election campaign, and I don’t recall any promises related to the homeless. If there was any political announcement, it certainly wasn’t given much push and priority by the pollies. And yet, that would have been the ideal time for pollies to highlight their compassion in regard to the homeless, and expand on plans and policies in this area. Maybe there’s no votes in it for the pollies, who knows?

I searched hard for anything in the election which may have had benefit for the homeless. That search resulted in this cartoon, which is not intended to be humorous, rather, symbolic of reality.
