William Gladstone is depicted pulling a Christmas cracker with another politican - out of the cracker bursts a cherub dressed in a sash that has "1888" printed on it. Below the cherub falls a banner labelled "England's and Scotland's turn", along with "Sugar" and "Fair Trade". In the background, an Irish moonlighter with the year "1887" labelled on his coat, slunks off.
