Lodge, Nevile Sidney, 1918-1989:'Prophets of doom who said there would be insufficient food for the world in 30 or 50 years would be proved wrong', Professor McCraw of the University of Waikato said yesterday.

Reference Number: B-134-428

This cartoon shows three scenes of current politicians in the future as elderly men. An aging Leader of the Opposition Muldoon berates Kirk that the people are starving and Prime Minister Kirk replies that there is ample food but the trouble is the failure of the proce freeze means people can't afford to by food. (This cartoon is interesting as Kirk died a year later and never got to be old.)
