Poster Print of 'Looking into the Accounts', 1861

'Looking into the Accounts', 1861

'Looking into the Accounts', 1861
'Looking into the Accounts', 1861. Mr Bull, the representative of the British people, hangs up his coat and hat, ready for a long stint of checking the nation's finances. Mr Gladstone, perched uncomfortably on a high stool, rather like the descriptions of Dickens's Bob Cratchit in A Christmas Carol, with a quill behind his ear, is caught in the act of closing the ledger marked 'Income Tax'. John Bull is encouraging Gladstone to take a short break so he can have a look at the ledger.

Poster Print of 'Looking into the Accounts', 1861

'Looking into the Accounts', 1861. Mr Bull, the representative of the British people, hangs up his coat and hat, ready for a long stint of checking the nation's finances. Mr Gladstone, perched uncomfortably on a high stool, rather like the descriptions of Dickens's Bob Cratchit in A Christmas Carol, with a quill behind his ear, is caught in the act of closing the ledger marked 'Income Tax'. John Bull is encouraging Gladstone to take a short break so he can have a look at the ledger. This relates to a debate in the House of Commons when the Conservative MP for Buckinghamshire proposed a motion for a Select Committee to sit in judgment on Income Tax and assess if it could not be more equitably levied. Gladstone strongly opposed such a suggestion, but eventually the government was defeated by four votes. Punch goes on to say that Mr John Bull, 'like a sensible commercial man, resolves to make his clerk Gladstone take a holiday, and meantime Mr Bull means to examine his books for himself'. From Punch, or the London Charivari, March 2, 1861
