One of the funniest programmes of the year
11 October 2005 | by (England) – See all my reviews

What a great satire this programme was. I don't think I have ever laughed so much in my life. I was lucky enough to catch this on the new 4 More channel, but it will appear on channel 4 shortly. If you haven't seen this yet please look out for it next week as I promise, you won't be disappointed. The best part of this programme is probably Robert Linsey as Tony Blair and Alex Jennings as the Machiavellian Alister Campbell. Whenever the plot was about these two I literally had to wipe the tears from my eyes. Bernard Hill as David Blunkett is also excellent, portraying a man who is a loser in love and ruthless in government and yet managing to ascertain a degree of sympathy for him from the audience as well. I think the best thing about this programme is that while it mocks the ineffectual cabinet ministers, it is not a blatantly right or left wing satire. This is a programme that anyone who has even a remote interest in politics from whatever perspective can enjoy.
