DescriptionSet in a saw mill, with characters in luberjack/cowboy costumes. A cowgirl labelled "Labour party" lies on a table. She is being pulled in two different directions by James Callaghan and Tony Benn, but this results in her moving closer towards a large circular saw. In the foreground two men representing the Amalgamated Union of Engineering Workers and the Transport and General Workers' Union sit oblivious, playing cards next to a "Block vote" lever set to "On". In the background Margaret Thatcher peers through a window.
