Abstract

English politicians William Ewart Gladstone (1809-98) and Benjamin Disraeli (1804-81) loathed each other. This cartoon by John Tenniel has Disraeli congratulating Gladstone on the Sovereign’s speech at the opening of Parliament in early 1869. Although pleasantries are depicted, each carry a birch behind their backs, ready to beat each other once Parliamentary sessions had begun.
