Paper reaches for the bottom draw

Daily Mail has come under attack for likening immigrants to sheep

Pickled Politics have attacked the Daily Mail today over the paper’s atrocious cartoon (see below).

They were reacting to a cartoon by Mac, which features a wedding between a man and a sheep. The groom says: “I’ve voted Labour all my life, vicar, and fully support their quest for a multicultural society.”

Sunny Hundal responded on his blog with the headline Daily Mail cartoon: immigrants are like animals right?

The Mail cartoon often seems to be caught in a time-warp, and today is no exception. Sunny is right to question whether immigrants are being compared to animals.

Such associations recently caused controversy in America, when the New York Post printed a cartoon of a monkey being shot by police.

While Fleet Street has progressed from the days when the image of a European explorer in an African cooking pot was a regular staple of the cartoonist, the Mail reminds us that we haven’t completely won that battle.
