Witty, bite -sized comedy wondrfully performed. Characters slightly dated now but that doesn't detract from the enjoyment at all. Recommended!
"I could listen to this over and over and over .."
..in fact I do listen to it over and over again. I still find it very funny.
I'd missed this on the radio, and it was an impulse purchase that I quite enjoyed, but I think it has dated a bit and with less stellar a cast it might not have kept me listening right through. Great fun in parts, and great performances.
"still relevant now"
Very funny episodes that cover topics that are still applicable today -if you like the House of Cards you'll love this.
". SOLID GOLD comedy"
Perfect combination humour and episodes true today as before Eu Cash for honours Spin Doctors
"Still very apt"
what goes around comes around and it's funny in a way that politics shouldn't be
