Is it possible that the text was printed below the cartoon?
Yes JBR, it was printed below the cartoon. I had failed to include it when I scanned the joke so I have added it to my posting.

1980: Support your national team

The blazer wearing deckchair pundit is shown as a relic from times long past. He is comforted by the fact that he can look down at that country as long as cricket is not part of the conversation.

1980: Stand up against all except me

The text that goes with this cartoon reads:

At home is one thing. At the office you must snap out of defeats without feeling shattered.

My reading of this cartoon is that she wants him to stand up for himself – but not against her.

1980: She is celebrating but what about Harry?

This shows correctly what she is thinking but in real life she would be dressing up the change as something like ‘he has found a voice which the public appreciates.’ Harry isn’t fooled whatever she says.

1981: It really is personal

Punch is now showing a definite trend towards somewhat salacious cartoons. It might be seen as a sort of compliment but Miss Thomas doesn’t appreciate this.

1980: An inhouse business advisor

She wouldn’t have said it and he wouldn’t have listened if she had. It might have been good advice but it also might have hastened the collapse of the business.

1980: Getting the funding

We are expected to feel that the Professor will need persuasive arguments rather than some obscure formula

1980: Anticipating Brexit?

The EEC (European Economic Community) was the forerunner of the European Union. We don’t hear about subsidies now and the tone of this cartoon is not hostile but it does not show respect for the EEC.
