"Brash has stolen my 'Appeal to prejudice and ignorance' cape!" 12 September, 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000180

"The scene shows a fleeing figure, whose head can't be seen, but whose spindly legs and the fact that on his singlet is a large 'N' for 'National' clearly show him to be National Leader, Don Brash. The figure is wearing a cape and a pair of worryingly loose underpants. Also in the cartoon are Winston Peters, Leader of New Zealand First and Rodney Hide, Leader of the ACT party; they are both naked and cowering coyly as they protest that Don Brash has stolen their cape and underpants. The suggestion is that Don Brash is appealing to the ignorant and prejudiced and the selfish in the New Zealand psyche.
