The Journey of the Maladroit

Hi All, Fiona the cartoonist here. Thanks for your feedback over the year (esp you, Pam!) and hope you have a safe and happy Christmas and as equally good a New Year. Love youse all

A safe and happy Christmas and New Year to you too, Fiona, our political cartoonist par excellence.

Fiona. If you'd stop taking almost daily cheap shots at Prime Minister Morrison we'd better appreciate your style of humour. Why not compliment some of the Eureka articles, or parody some Church or Bank characturs in the news at the moment. Give us a break.

Not sure what Fiona's cartoon says about the people who voted for the leaders she thinks Christ rejects, but it says a lot about the dominant perspective of ES.

One cartoon - or even most of Fiona's cartoons - 'says a lot about the dominant perspective of ES' Ken ? Perhaps what it/they illustrate(s) is the willingness of ES to expose a variety of perspectives to critical appraisal. As I understand it, ES is in the business of challenging. Would you prefer it to be teaching?

Our political "representatives" so frequently ignore the plight of the most disadvantaged in Australia and around the world, they seem oblivious to the dangers to Earth and her people that Climate Change presents, they build walls, erect detention centres for Refugees; they support emission-emitting practices, and continue to send products such as coal to poorer countries which consequently increase carbon emissions. Whey would ES NOT satirise them?

Thank you Fiona I think this summarises the current situation in which we find ourselves very well. The 3 Unwise Men are 3 politicians who seem incapable of showing compassion for those in need (plenty for the super wealthy and the big corporations, however) or developing effective programs to meet the urgent environmental and social issues that humanity faces.

Decades according to the calendar begin with 1 and end with 0 - e.g. 2001 to 2010. The first day of this century was 1st January, 2001. So we are at the end of the 9th year of the current decade at present.
