TitleAgriculture policy
Date[1974- 1976]
Extent1 cartoon
Creator NameGibbard; Leslie David (1945-2010); cartoonist
DescriptionCartoon shows Harold Wilson hitchiking by the side of the road whilst a car labelled "super six" speeds towards him. A cow labelled "agriculture policy" lies in the middle of the road just in front of the oncoming car.

Likely that the cartoon relates to concerns over Britain's agricultural policy and the impact of its membership in the European Economic Community on this policy. Thus the "super six" in the car likely refers to the six founding countries of the EEC: France, Italy, Belgium, (West) Germany, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. President of France Valéry Giscard is recognisable and sitting in the driver's seat.
