Sadly predictable
26 May 2017 | by glhoward33See all my reviews

I cannot be alone in being dismayed by the extreme left-wing bias in this program. The Tories are the most popular party in the country, so I assume that the relentless bashing of any view or person who does not subscribe to far-left virtue-signalling must be irritating to others apart from myself. It's not as if the current leadership of the Labour Party doesn't provide a goldmine of potential comedy skits.
