Behind the Lines: The Year’s Best Political Cartoons 2015 celebrates another year in Australia’s unique, vibrant and fearless tradition of political cartooning. No politician, party or policy is safe from the nation’s best cartoonists; witty, powerful or ribald, their images offer an astutely observed journey through twelve months in our political life. In a year that began with the Charlie Hebdo atrocity, these cartoons bring home to us that their voices are ours, capturing the spirit of our democracy with its passion, scepticism and above all, humour.
“Satire is controversial, it’s provocative, it offends all religions, all political parties, nothing and no-one is spared. (It) is a counter-balance against power.” Julie Bishop MP
