Gilmour, John Henry, 1892-1951 :Is this John Bull's style of imperial preference? New Zealand Free Lance, 22 October 1930 (front page).

Reference Number: A-313-1-041

John Bull (Great Britain) has his arm around a dairy maid (Denmark) and is handing her a 'butter cheque 140 shillings per c.w.t.' [hundredweight]. She says 'I like you, John, but I like your butter cheques better.' On his other side a younger, prettier, dairy maid is offering him the 'world's best butter' at 112 shillings per c.w.t. and protesting 'Say, Dad, don't be so fresh with her. You have your own daughters to consider.' Under the Imperial Preference scheme New Zealand's dairy produce should have had an advantage in the British marketplace, but the British consumers preferred to buy the Danish product.
