At the moment, with the world being in the state its in, the only positive thing that the current world instability offers, is to provide endless material for the great social satirists.

Bremner, Bird and Fortune is one of the best sources of satire that is currently shown on Television (with the demise of Spitting Image long ago). From George W. Bush to Tony Blair, Prince Charles to the NHS. Nothing is safe.

If you can appreciate satire without getting all bent out of shape about partisanship, then this show is for you!
