Roll Up! Roll Up!

‘Roll up, roll up, to the Greatest Show on Earth!’

Yet again, the last year in politics has provided plenty of sensational events to capture the imagination of cartoonists. During July and August, the origins of politicians who were caught out by the Constitution’s Section 44 became a daily news item. The federal Budget caught attention with its invitation to consider both ‘good debt’ and ‘bad debt’ – and then there were the rising power bills. Though rich in fossil fuels, wind and sunshine, Australia, as our cartoonists suggest, may risk being energy poor.
