Extent1 cartoon
Creator NameGibbard; Leslie David (1945-2010); cartoonist
DescriptionIn a hospital operating room, a sweating Edward Heath has been tied to an operating table and had his mouth covered. Harold Wilson, dressed as a surgeon, stands over him asking a similarly dressed woman for the 'Guillotine, nurse'. Behind them rests a limp, skinny body labelled 'Labour', which has a 'Votes' drip feed that is running close to empty. The window to the operating room shows a man wearing a crown [and with a stethoscope around his neck], who is presumably rushing towards the entrance to break up this scene. Above the window is a clock which reads 'Election'. A small newspaper cutout of this cartoon has been attached to the back of the sheet, however it has some damage/portions missing down the centre of the paper.
