This cartoon in Dutch newspaper Volksrant doesn’t pull its punches.
It shows Boris Johnson, his back to us, raping – that’s right, raping – the UK, while others including Jacob Rees-Mogg, Dominic Cummings and Nigel Farage wait their turn to do the same. The other one may be Michael Gove, according to a commenter to This Site.
Meanwhile a representative of the BBC – who looks uncannily like the granny from the old Times ‘Giles’ cartoons, tells members of the public: “Move along now. Nothing to see here.”
The situation it depicts is even worse than that displayed on this billboard:
A rhetorical question I assume. #PoliticsLive pic.twitter.com/J0txFDLzUn

This cartoon is saying that the Tories (and Farage) are violating the people of the UK.
And the BBC is helping them do it, by directing the people to look in the other direction.
I’m surprised the granny wasn’t pointing at a cartoon Corbyn and saying, “Look! Anti-Semite!”
But here’s the real question:
If the Dutch can see what’s going on, why can’t millions of the British – even if the BBC is sowing confusion?
The Dutch media are not pulling their punches.
This was published in the Volksrant, a daily newspaper.
As you can see it depicts the UK being gang raped by Johnson, Farage, Cummings, Rees-Mogg and somebody else.
The BBC is saying, “Move along now. Nothing to see here”.
Seems to me the Dutch have a grip of what’s happening here and the BBC’s role in it.

Spot on, but the British public are so masochistic they now enjoy having it stuck up em! They are looking forward to taking a shower from his water cannons!
The cartoon is brilliant.
You’ve answered the question you pose yourself
“Meanwhile a representative of the BBC – who looks uncannily like the granny from the old Times ‘Giles’ cartoons, tells members of the public: “Move along now. Nothing to see here.”
Throw the constant propaganda from the rest of the ‘mass media’ into the mix and is it any wonder that the majority of the electorate have been brainwashed. Any pretence at fair coverage throughout this election campaign has obviously been abandoned for this election.
Kitty S Jones has written a good article about MSM’s mendacious ‘reporting’.
This Antiodean one is spot-on – First Dog on the Moon:
Sorry, I agree with you 99.9% of the time, but anything that depicts rape is abhorrent to me. Having been a victim of extreme domestic violence in the past, 30 years later I still get flashbacks to the abuse I suffered.
Isn’t that the point – to drag people out of their complacency with an image that is shocking, but appropriate to the situation it describes?
The somebody else, is the Gove-bot?
The artist acknowledges that the cartoon’s based on Giles, see top left.
