CARTOONS Let prurience be your muse. Here are some cartoons I drew to pass the time when my son was nine months old. My inspiration was a scandal that hit the papers in 1995
The journalist, the banker and the banker's wife
It was 1995. He was the deputy governor of the Bank of England. She was a financial journalist whose credentials included The Telegraph and The Economist.
The end of their affair caused him to lose his job, and her to lose hers. But, as newspapers later quoted her as saying: "If you're going to dump, don't dump a financial journalist" - especialy if you are deputy governor of the Bank of England.
Suffice to say headlines were generated that kept the public enthralled and down tumbled the banker from a position of privilege to ignominy.
I'm sorry to disappoint but I don't think I will repeat the lurid reportage of the case. I thought it would be more interesting to present it from a cartoonist's point of view.

If you're going to dump, don't dump a financial journalist
You will respect me in the morning
I, for one, couldn't care less what a man does after hours as long as he does his job well
Yes, I am standing by my husband.
