An exhibition of cartoons on the Leader of the Tory Party, David Cameron.
13 October – 24 December 2009, Political Cartoon Society
This exhibition of 60 original political cartoons charts the fortunes of David Cameron since he became Leader of the Conservative Party in December 2005. Due to his upbringing and education, Cameron is often portrayed as a toff and is portrayed by Martin Rowson of the Guardian as Little Lord Fauntleroy. After Cameron called for greater transparency in the publication of both Commons’ expenses and councils’ expenditure, Steve Bell also of the Guardian now draws him as Dave the Jellyfish. As well as cartoons by Bell and Rowson, there are also cartoons of Cameron by Peter Brookes and Morten Morland of The Times, Dave Brown and Peter Schrank of The Independent, Ingram Pinn of the Financial Times, and Andy Davey of the Sun amongst many other leading cartoonists.
