The cartoon by Paul Thomas from the Daily Express shows a man and a woman standing in a field near a wind farm. The wind turbines have been snapped off and blown away by the force of the storm. The man comments, 'Every cloud ...'.
To understand this cartoon you first have to know the saying that the man is thinking of: 'Every cloud has a silver lining.' This means that every bad situation has some good aspect to it (see here for the origin). It is sometimes just reduced to 'Every cloud ...', since the speaker will assume that his interlocutor is familiar with the expression. You also have to know that many people in Britain are opposed to wind turbines for a variety of reasons including cost, environmental impact, etc. So the bad situation is the storm (represented by actual clouds), and the good aspect is the destruction of the wind turbines (we have to assume that the man is in the anti-wind farm camp).
