Extent1 cartoon
Creator NameGibbard; Leslie David (1945-2010); cartoonist
DescriptionCartoon in which two people [likely Margaret Thatcher and Fran├žois Mitterrand] shake hands. Behind them we see a tunnel labelled as 'Chunnel' [the Channel Tunnel]. Beside the tunnel is a large pyramid made of scaffolding, up which harshly-treated workers are carrying additional material under the orders of a whip-wielding superior. In the foreground, a man holding a scroll has the attention of [Thatcher] and [Mitterrand].

[To Mitterrand's side is what we may assume to be a gallic rooster - an unofficial French national symbol. Possible indicator that the side this bird and Mitterrand stand on is the French side of land/the channel.]
