Review

The big hits were loaded into episode one last week. Now this political prank show is more about quick raids on corporate foyers, and the unending delight of people with strong opinions who keep giving them long after they should have realised that their interlocutor is bogus.

In fairness, some don’t know they’re being filmed and, in the case of noted intellectual Jonathan Miller, his rant when he’s doorstepped on election day by an openly corrupt Tory is rather magnificent. The members of anti-monarchist protest group Republic fare less well – and two hugely profitable utility companies haven’t a hope.

Summary

James and Barnaby canvass for votes during the London mayoral election in a bid to get Boris Johnson re-elected. Dale Maily experiences the Jubilee weekend, water and energy companies receive a surprise and the Guantanamo Bay inmates take part in a sports day. Satirical comedy sketches, performed by Heydon Prowse and Jolyon Rubinstein.
