Storyline

Having recently returned to the back benches - following accidents to the other candidates for his sets - B'stard is interviewed on television by Brian Walden, who is shocked by his reactionary views, such as ending the welfare state and taxing the poor. In the interval two make-up girls claim that B'stard has fathered children to them but in the second half his rousing speech demanding that a wall be built to seal England off from Wales and Scotland leads to the switchboard being jammed with messages of support though it turns out that is all a ruse for Walden's show to regain its failing ratings and he and B'stard have a financial arrangement.

Mordant satire
17 March 2005 | by (Turku, Finland) – See all my reviews

Alan B'Stard is a High Tory MP whose ambition is only excelled by his ruthlessness. If you know the New Statesman then you will know the animal that we are dealing with. Extremely funny but I doubt whether this will transfer well over to the US. This is not because of any bitchy complaint about "Americans don't get irony"(although a lot of that features) but because the series was so very rooted in its own zeitgeist of Thatcherite Britain. You laugh so much only because recognition of the series' targets hurts so much and if you weren't personally there then the less obvious gags will inevitably fall flat. Still, B'Stard is a creation of comic genius.
