Licensing Bill, 1908

A satirical cartoon criticising the Licensing Bill of 1908 showing Prime Minister Asquith slaughtering the licensing trade and asking "Whose turn next?". The Licensing Bill sought to reduce the number of licensed premises and provoked an outcry among the working classes who saw it as an infringement of their civil rights (the bill was introduced to try and curb drunken behaviour). Private social clubs meanwhile were exempt from restrictions
