An ode to priorities. Guv'ment won't fund the answer, to spare you cervical cancer, so the vaccine's a mighty expense for ya! But wealthy sports' guys, they will subsidise, to go sailing boats off Valencia! 7 July, 2007
Reference Number: DCDL-0003560
The cartoon is principally a rhyme about the government choosing not to subsidise the drug Herceptin which is used to treat cervical cancer but is assisting in the funding of Tean New Zealand in order to keep New Zealand's bid for the America's Cup afloat. There are also two small images, one of a woman sitting at a desk looking thoughtful and the other of a sailing boat.
