File:Meeting of Asquith cabinet19090001.jpg

English: This satirical cartoon depicts a meeting of the Cabinet of British Prime Minister H.H. Asquith as envisaged by the artists.

The picture shows the following persons: Back row (left to right) Richard Haldane, Winston Churchill (text balloon reads "Don't let my feet touch the ground!"), David Lloyd George, H.H. Asquith, John Morley. Front Row: Reginald McKenna, Crewe (text balloon reads "My boy, they are delivered into our hands!") and Augustine Birrell.

Caption reads: "Awful Scene of Gloom and Dejection, When the Ministry Heard of the Lords' Decision to Refer the Budget to the Country" (ironically quoting - and poking fun at - a claim by the Conservatives during the argument for the budget of 1909 saying the very same)
