Despite having taken every wrong turn along the way, Bushranger blindly spurs his mount ever onwards... 13 October, 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000309

The scene shows a cowboy wearing dark glasses but with the unmistakable face of United States President, George Bush, riding a rocking horse which he beats along with huge determination. The body of the rocking horse is made of a large oilcan. In front of the rocking horse is a signpost with the words 'The Middle East' painted on it and a vulture sitting on top of it. Refers to the political shambles that is growing in the Middle East, brought about, in some part, by American greed for oil.
