Amusing and cynical but not realistic
1 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This satire is very amusing and shows how fickle politics and politicians are, however the show most not be taken too seriously. If you keep in mind the insane nature of the story, you may very well enjoy it as much as i did. Robert Lindsay is brilliant as Blair, but then he is brilliant in almost all of his roles, he does however nail Blair when showing him as his grinning media self, the portrayals of Gordon Brown and of David Cameron are also very funny, though the physical likeness of both is questionable the voices and actions are perfect.

The humour is biting throughout but then again so is much of the political comedy in Britain. If you are prepared to take this show at face value i am sure you will thoroughly enjoy it. I cannot wait for the second installment.
