Scott, Thomas, 1947-:"Les Patterson's the name, diplomacy is my game. Offending five nationalities in one speech is bloody impressive, so I want to congratulate my Kiwi cobber, the High Commissioner to Canada, Graham 'potty mouth' Kelly..." Dominion Post

Reference Number: DX-025-137

Sir Les Patterson is a stomach-turning fictional character invented by Australian comedian Sir Barry Humphries. He perfects political incorrectness and is hugely satirical. In this cartoon he is dressed in filthy food-spattered clothes and is booming through his shattered teeth about his delight in being able to congratulate someone who has managed to offend more nationalities in one hit than he has ever managed himself. His hand is laid on the cringing shoulder of Graham Kelly, the High Commissioner to Canada who has just made the offending specch to the Canadian Senate Committee on Fisheries and Oceans.
