As Jewish News’ resident cartoonist, Paul Solomons is programmed to see the funny side of things, be they good, bad or inscrutable.
His perspective on news and politics gives us all a laugh each week.
In terms of inspiration, he was spoilt for choice.
“The Brexit campaign and aftermath has been a cartoonist’s dream,” he says.
“It had everything that you would normally expect to find in a biblical epic, a Shakespearean play, or a Hollywood blockbuster.
“And it’s the story that keeps on giving. It hasn’t been as much fun being a cartoonist since the horsemeat scandal.
“I thought the Olympics were great, too. Not many Jews on the podium, but setting off late is in our genes, so I suppose that’s to be expected.”
