DescriptionCartoon shows a man [possible a trade union leader] with an apple on his head labelled "wildcats", Edward Heath stands at a distance with a bow and arrow. Harold Wilson stands between the two with his finger raised, appearing to lecture Heath, the caption reads "Don't you dare shoot - you might hurt the boy!" meanwhile Heath's bow and arrow hang limply in his hands and he wears a disappointed expression.
