169: Leo Abse
in “Private Eye” 6 January 1967
Leo Abse, who died on Tuesday 19 August 2008, was the Member of Parliament who introduced the Sexual Offences (homosexual reform) Bill. It was passed as an Act in 1967, decriminalising sex between consenting men over the age of 21.
I've never seen "Francis" before or since as a cartoonist. It's a relatively sweet and inncouous cartoon.
