Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
One point that I have never yet seen mentioned is that several of the cartoons ALSO make fun of JP and/or the cartoonists. One has "PR stunt" quite explicitly visible. The one with the kid stats that "JP's journalists are a bunch of reactionary provocateurs".

Which brings me to the point that I disagree with the almost universal opinion that these cartoons were pretty bad. There are provocative, sure - that was the explicit intent, but they are not without ambiguity, which is the hallmark of good caricature. And several I liked.
