News of the day
The day-to-day cut and thrust of politics provides cartoonists with a wealth of material. In 2007, major news stories included health, citizenship testing and Australia's migration policy. The deportation of Dr Mohammed Haneef and the return of David Hicks from Guantánamo Bay attracted special attention. The year came to a close with the APEC Summit in Sydney, the outbreak of equine influenza and the decision to proceed with a pulp mill in the Tamar Valley, Tasmania.
