InterWar cartoons from Punch magazine by Leonard Raven Hill

Indiscriminate Dope. The Horse (addressing John Bull). "It's all right, guv'nor. This isn't meant to make me try any harder. It's just a comforting drug." John Bull. "If this goes on, somebody will have to be warned off the course." [It is widely recognised that the serious increase in the number of the unemployed cannot be entirely explained by "world causes," but is due in part to the government's method of administration, which encourages abuse of the dole by those are not honestly seeking work.] (an InterWar cartoon shows Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald feeding race horse The Slacker with a bucket of Dole)
