TitleLeyland
Date[1977]
Extent1 cartoon
Creator NameGibbard; Leslie David (1945-2010); cartoonist
DescriptionCartoon shows a man disembarking from a plane labelled "Leyland". The man is holding a gun and is carrying a child in his arms labelled "differentials". On the ground beneath the plans Denis Healey and James Callaghan look towards each other questioningly, behind them is a fuel tanquard with a "£" sign on it.

[It is likely that the cartoon refers to the Leyland toolroom strike of 1977, where pay differentials were a key issue. The Callaghan administration pumped a lot of money into Leyland in order to keep the company running whilst the strike disputes were resolved.]
