In 1996, Peter Brookes launched a series of cartoons in The Times called "Nature Notes." It includes Boris Yeltsin as a Muscovy (lame) duck; Ian Paisley as an Orange-utan ('Devours all greenery'); and Baroness Thatcher as a rabid old bat. This second volume brings together over fifty new illustrations, with each cartoon taking as its theme a news story of the time, from Tory in-fighting to Monicagate. Both a revealing commentary on the first years of the New Labour government and a hilarious succession of merciless character studies, this book is essential reading for the politically informed.
