Politics can be funny
Tweekums from United Kingdom
5 June 2009
If somebody had told me that a programme featuring Andrew Neil, Michael
Portillo and Diane Abbott would be so entertaining I'd have thought
they were mad. The biggest surprise is the chemistry between
left-winger Abbott and former darling of the Tory right Portillo.
Each week they discuss the week's political news and give their views
on what the parties will do and what they think they should do,
frequently in a way that suggests they don't have a high opinion of the
government, Andrew Neil invariably refers to Gordon Brown as "Our Great
Leader" as though he were a North Korean dictator. The regulars are
joined by other commentators who may be politicians, political
journalists or celebrities who present an amusing report on one of the
week's news items before joining the regulars in the studio.
It is just a shame that this excellent programme is broadcast so late,
starting, because of this I only manage to watch it occasionally. If
you are interesting in politics but don't take it too seriously this
programme will be for you.
