Satire against Conservative policies- the 'Conservative Angel' top centre brings 'all Ale to Spirits', dispensing beer from a tankard marked 'vote for Lush'. A 'Nunn at Devotions' prays for the defeat of radicals and two figures on a wheel are 'just caught in the Conservative rat trap'. Other figures include Jim Crow, two fish (brother Gudgeon and friend Haddock) jumping for bait, and 'Don Diego de Carle-os Lie-ing in State'.
