Tom Scott parliamentary cartoon, 1992

There was a sharp edge to the cartoons that touched on public attitudes towards politics and politicians, especially as cartoonists themselves sought to offer a social commentary in their work. Through the 1980s a string of opinion polls suggested that the public's trust in politicians was sometimes relatively low. Evening Post cartoonist Tom Scott, a former member of the press gallery, captured the public mood through this period. A fire during the refurbishment of Parliament Buildings in 1992 provoked this observation.
