‘Leunig, you’re spot on’: Tom Elliott gives today’s cartoon the thumbs up

3AW Drive host Tom Elliott says The Age’s cartoonist Michael Leunig gets a ‘thumbs up’ for his cartoon in today’s paper.

He said the controversial cartoonist had got it right today after a ‘disgusting’ illustration in recent weeks on vaccination.

‘I gave him an absolute serve a week ago,’ he said.

‘He came out with a cartoon which I thought was absolutely beyond the pale.

‘He essentially compared the efforts to vaccinate children with a form of fascism, I thought that was unbelievably stupid.

‘Today I am going to give him the thumbs up.’
