A few cartoons I did for OurSay for the Grill The Independents talk

So, I have been speaking recently with the people at OurSay and they got me to do some cartoons as a response to the “Grill the Independents” forum, which involved Bernard Keane from Crikey putting questions to Tony Windsor and Rob Oakshott from OurSay’s users.

Unfortunately, as I thought may be the case, they weren’t able to use the cartoons in the end… because I guess the basis of political cartooning is ridicule and their business is encouraging political leaders to engage with their audience. If they serve up ridicule after asking political leaders to answer questions from their users, it does kind of send a mixed message.

For context: Andrew Wilkie declined to be involved in the forum.

The forum is well worth listening to, especially in the context of Oakshott’s vote in the same sex marriage bill in the House of Reps this week.
