Morten Morland’s ‘The Troubled’

Morten Morland on Northern Ireland, Brian John Spencer

I need to say from the outset that the cartoon above is not mine, but the work of Norwegian cartoonist Morten Morland (@mortenmorland) who produces political cartoons for the London Times, The Spectator and many more esteemed publications. To my mind it captures absolutely the cause of the mindless violence. What does that say about our leadership if even a Norwegian can see this?

Below is also a cartoon I did recently which pales in comparison to the work of Morland, but which hopefully carries a message of sorts.

Ian Paisley, Brian John Spencer
