Politics 11 February 2010 Is this cartoon racist? A controversial cartoon in -- you guessed it -- the Daily Mail. Print HTML Following a story yesterday about the supposed "secret plot to make a multicultural UK" (a story which, in fact, rehashed old news), the Daily Mail today carries this cartoon: Sunny Hundal, who flagged up the illustration on Liberal Conspiracy, says: "Yes, it's really a man marrying a sheep in the name of 'multiculturalism'. Because, you know, immigrants are clearly no different to animals." Is this a blatantly racist cartoon, or is there some sort of satirical, non-offensive meaning that we're completely missing?
