    A commentary on the Liberal Government's attempt to disestablish the Church of Ireland, this shows Mr Bull, 'Dr. Gladstone', and 'Dr. Bright' in front of representatives of the Irish and English Churches—the Siamese twins. John Bull asks Dr Gladstone whether the operation to separate the twins will be 'fatal to either', Gladstone replying in the negative, and Bright insisting that the operation will 'do 'em both all the good in the world'.
