From the cover: “Who are our rulers? And why should we not laugh at them? What sort of a democracy is it that takes its masters with too reverent a seriousness? Readers of the Daily Express already enjoy their Cummings cartoon as a regular morning breakfast dish, and here he has brought together a more enduring gallery of the day’s leading political personalities, holding up their foibles to laughter and caricature.
Cummings’s brilliant drawings are partnered by Christopher Hollis’s witty and incisive verses. A former Member of Parliament himself, Christopher Hollis now writes Punch’s famous Essence of Parliament feature, for which Cummings again provides the illustrations. In The Ayes and The Noes they have given us ninety pages of fun and good-natured satire.”
