A Land of Promise Bernard Partridge Cartoons from Punch magazine
A Land of Promise. First Workman (employed). "They promised me a house; but there don't seem to be enough bricks, or men to lay 'em." Second Workman (unemployed). "They promised me work, and I'm willin' to make bricks or lay 'em; but I can't get a job." Both (together). "And they call themselves a 'Labour' gover'ment."
