The Cupboard Still Bare


Spoof of nursery rhyme 'Old Mother Hubbard', showing Chamberlain dressed as an old lady opening the 'Old Age Pensions Cupboard' for her dog called 'Aged Poor'. Satirical version of nursery rhyme below image, and explanatory text below the nursery rhyme, commenting on Chamberlain's suggestion that 'the workman should pay for his Old Age Pension out of a tax on his food'.

Thick red border around the image.
