Norman Mansbridge cartoons from Punch magazine
Empire Day. (Mr Nehru has ordered the removal of statues of British rulers in India.) Ere the cords of the Commonwealth sunder, keep the forces of rupture in check, give heed to the remnants about ye, and save what ye can from the wreck. Remove not the ancient landmark; though ye deem it a token of shame it may yet contain something of value; ye may find a use for the same.
