TitleUntitled [Full Employment]
Extent1 cartoon
Creator NameGibbard; Leslie, David (1945-2010); cartoonist
DescriptionThis cartoon displays [Edward Heath] photographing [Harold Wilson] whilst he is struggling to stay afloat in the water. A canon is projecting more water onto [Wilson], as it is bouncing off a sheet that reads 'full employment'.

It is possible that this cartoon reflects the constant competition between [Heath] and [Wilson] over the late 1960s and early 1970s. The reference to 'full employment' in the image is likely to be referring to the battle over lowering unemployment figures as a means of proving the economic successes of their governments.
