What an awful, bigoted cartoon about someone challenged intellectually!

It was very revealing of George Brandis's character and values when he responded in Parliament that everyone has the right to be a bigot. Can you imagine what can be said when one loses his patience and says things out of frustration or anger, the way GB did? It's good that you put up a mirror into his face with your cartoon. I wonder if he likes what he sees of himself from your prespective? You are exercisiing your rights! Right?

That cartoon is offensive. GB feels aggrieved; - his feelings have been hurt by it.. Can he sue the author?

To follow on:- Under the GB proposed legislation he cannot sue the author. Perhaps the author should be thankful for that.
