“But David, how come you keep your hands so clean?” cartoon by Crippen
September 8, 2010
Crippen’s ‘gloves’ cartoon description – Clegg and Cameron, in matching blue suits, shirts and ties, are in a room together. On the wall beside them is a notice that reads ‘Benefit Cuts Control – directive 326c. Deny any knowledge of deaths, suicides resulting from benefit cuts.’ Cameron is holding a piece of paper on which is written ‘Cuts, cuts, cuts’. Clegg has blood covering his hands and dripping onto the floor. He is saying to Cameron: “But David, how come you keep your hands so clean?!” On the floor by Cameron is an open box of disposable gloves. He is also wearing a pair and there are used ones, covered in blood on the floor around him.
