DescriptionIn the top left-hand corner of the photo, a woman labelled 'Voter' is standing on a balcony. A sign below her indicates that the building is called 'Mrs Thatcher's Monetarist View Guest House'. She is preparing to jump from the balcony, as smoke billows from the building behind her. On the ground below, there is a group of people pulling together to hold a safety net to catch her in, but it has holes in it. A man smoking a pipe signals for her to jump down. To the right of the image there is a firetruck labelled 'Labour Party Salvage and Rescue'. A hose labelled 'funds' is coming out of the truck, but there is no water coming out of it. Two men are holding the end of the hose looking confused. Another man stands between the truck and the hose, looking at the empty hose on the floor.
