3.0 out of 5 stars Almost 4 stars but...
This is almost worth 4 stars. The humour and wit on the pages of this book is undeniable and will be a condensed treat for Private Eye fans. But if there's a fault, and it's not necessarily from Private Eye's end, it's that many of the lampooned news stories will be forgotten by the time the annual is published.

but anyway this is a hilarious annual. and the fact you actually learn current affairs at the same time is a useful side-effect!

This is a book into which one can dip for an instantaneous chuckle. This is my kind of humour, and I can strongly recommend it to those who appreciate clever satire.

The maximum possible satire and sheer comedy extracted from a year of news. Always a delight for people who enjoy Politics and scandals.
