Celebrity Russell Brand made an ear-catching contribution to the national conversation during the autumn when he urged young people not to vote because the political system no longer represented their interests. You can read his words here.

He might be right about that but if young people don’t vote, the one certainty is that the OAPs votes will rule. Hence, the cartoon.
