In today’s featured cartoon, as UK gears for its next PM, cartoonist Christian Adams alludes to UK Foreign Secretary and PM candidate Lizz Truss’ ideologies and the head-on battle for votes for the PM’s seat. Truss had voted ‘remain’ in the 2016 referendum for the Brexit polls and the cartoonist refers to that in this illustration.
