In today’s featured cartoon, Andy Davey refers to the Labour Party’s Kim Leadbeater who narrowly won the Batley and Spen by-election, easing pressure off Britain’s opposition leader Keir Starmer whose party was expected to lose for the third time in the Northern constituency.

Peter Brookes depicts a celebratory mood in China on the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party, which is in stark contrast to the condition of the Uighurs and Hong Kong citizens who have been victims of CCP’s alleged atrocities.

Christian Adams | Evening Standard

Christian Adams, in his cartoon, comments on Boris Johnson’s rebuffing Covid concerns in Britain and allowing 60,000 people to the Euro 2020 matches at Wembley.
