The Political Situation
'The Political Situation', 1860. This cartoon shows all the various gamekeepers employed on the estates of the Members of Parliament in 1860. Even as late as 23rd August, Parliament was still sitting. Palmerston is seen telling them not to bother waiting, as their masters won't 'be up' for a long time. This is a clear indication of the general status of those serving in Parliament at the time. At last, according to Mr Punch, 'the weary Session, which like a wounded snake had been dragging its slow length along since January the twenty-fourth' came to an end on 28th August 1860. From Punch, or the London Charivari, August 25, 1860.
