    Yes! Brilliant is the word for this cartoon..So much more than Nisbits.
    I imagine John Key, is it? would be relaxed but John watsisname could be a tad nervous.

    Emmerson? Brilliant? Apart from the obviousness of this cartoon, there is not a scintilla of wit in it.

    You need to remember how Emmerson got his job at the Herald: the pisspoor “editor” of the time was bullied and browbeaten and harassed into firing his predecessor. If Rod Emmerson had an ounce of decency or any ethical standards, he would have refused to take it.

      The circumstances you describe, while worth noting, don’t actually determine the amount of wit in this or any other cartoon.

    A fair point, well taken, felix. Yes, Emmerson’s work must be judged on its merits, or lack of.
