A monumental error




In this Fiona Katauskas cartoon, a broken statue of Scott Morrison stands in a desert landscape. The statue reads, 'Look on all the money I saved by doing nothing, ye mighty, and despair!' The bottom tagline reads, 'Aussiemandias'.

Percy Bysshe Shelley: such prescience.

Spot on, Fiona. I just hope enough people get the reference, particularly those with the "...frown, And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command."

Today's Fiona Katauskas cartoon is brilliant.

Triffic, Fiona. Not sure about the ‘sneer of cold command’, though, Bill Venables. More like the anxious smile of one who seeks to placate both God and Mammon....

Very clever. Yes, 'the sneer of cold command.' But also: 'Nothing beside remains.' Gillian

Oh how I love poetry and cartoon; so much can be said with so few words. Thanks Fiona...

Very clever indeed! 'Aussiemandias' - love it :-)
