Where the grim things are

I've had such a long day ... but theirs appears to have been much longer:

(Via Reuters).

Point one: We're pretty certain that there is an eighteenth-/early nineteenth-century image (Hogarth? Gilray?) that closely corresponds to this one. But, rack our brains as we may (as already stated, this has been a long day and we're also suffering from the lingering after-effects of the God-bothering madness bonanza earlier referred to), we can't seem to think of it. Would art historians out there please tell us which picture it is!

Point two: Based on this evidence, we are seriously concerned about the future of Britain. And we seriously care about some people who live there. How do you cope?
