The Tide's In

Date made: 1956

Artist: Miller, Harold 'Dusty'

Description: Satirical cartoon drawn for Isle of Man Times newspaper, published 3 February 1956. In this cartoon the rural MHKs are shown as King Canute and his men, dressed in medieval armour and trying to hold back the tide shown as 'Redistribution'. One of the men says "we'll have to move with the tide." The issue which had vexed the house of Keys for many months had finally been resolved with the Speaker giving the casting vote to redistribute seats from the rural areas to Ramsey and Douglas.
