InterWar cartoons from Punch magazine by Leonard Raven Hill

The Unfairy Godfather. Dr Addison. "I am here to protect you." British Farmer. "Protect me from what? Foreign competition?" Dr Addison. "No! No! From your own incompetence." British Farmer. "Thank you very much." [Under Dr Addison's Bill, home producers are to have their output controlled, but foreigners may continue to send their produce here in unrestricted quantities. Meanwhile, as The Times points out, he has irritated the farmers "by unneccessary criticism of their technical ability."] (an InterWar cartoon shows Christopher Addison with his Agricultural Marketing Bill as he stands infront of the sign Foreign Produce May Be Dumped Here - By Order Ministry Of Agriculture)
