I don't wish to be hard with Emmerson at the New Zealand Herald.
I have always loved his Helen Clark, thinking he produces the best of our former Dear Leader.
But today I was looking at his Week That Was cartoons, and while his John Key was fine, there is still much work that needs to be done on his Bill English, as seen here on Thursday.
I guess it all comes down to practice and the nation's cartoonists will just have to keep on working on their drawings and refining their images of our new government.
But might some find a new regime damages their careers as some impressionists have found?
I recall as a boy UK impressionist Mike Yarwood reached the peak of his career for his impressions of former PM Harold Wilson, and it never recovered when Wilson was gone. Margaret Thatcher created a short career for Janet Brown, just as Sarah Palin recently worked wonders for Tina Fey.
Now, I recall someone used to do a plausible Helen Clark impression on tv (sorry, I've forgotten her name) but it appears New Zealand does not have the talent or the political will from our tv stations to have such impressionists on tv.
I am sure someone in Britain does a wonderful Gordon Brown on tv now (and is perhaps working on their Dave Cameron too) so it is a shame that New Zealand misses out on such satirical entertainment.
Let us us hope our cartoonists, satirists and impressionists can bring themselves up with the times.
And good luck to them!
