Review of 2012

Yep, it's time for my annual selection of topical pocket cartoons from the past year, some published, some not.

Let's dive straight in...

A bit of technology that caught my eye...

The government carried on with its privatisation programme...
(They've privatised the yellowbrick road!)
...and its war on drugs...
A new building was unveiled in London, as the weather closed in (Cartooning pal Royston Robertson beat me to this one in Private Eye, the blighter, with the very same gag)...
Newspapers continued to struggle, as the recession rumbled on...
Bankers remained unpopular and discredited...
And the cuts to, well, just about everything continued...
That book (and more wet weather)...
Those Olympics...
(Me? I'm Legacy)


The big supermarkets squeezed the profit margins for dairy farmers ever tighter...
A film came out of one of my favourite books...
That Jimmy Savile business...
(Yes, Savile was my patient for many years. He talked a lot about his
sexual misdemeanours, but of course, you assumed he was joking...)
...and the fall-out from it...
That's all folks -- Happy New Year!
