Qld State Election - "One Toot & You're Oot! - Cartoon, 1947.

This cartoon references a State law gazetted in 1918 that curbs the excessive use of loudspeakers or maybe politicians singing their praises too loudly? I'm not sure whether the law was directed specifically at election candidates or noisy people in general. Perhaps the law needs an amendment to include Twitter, You Tube, talk-back radio and 5-second sound-bites on the evening news.


1947 '"ONE. TOOT AND YOU'RE OOT!".', Cairns Post (Qld. : 1909 - 1954), 21 April, p. 1
