Having been away from the UK for some time and only hearing the news as filtered through 'world' news media, its wonderful to see it all through the Private Eye lens, parodying, satirizing, pastiching, and implicitly ridiculing. This is a great way to look at the UK news without crying. Private Eye brings all aspects of UK news (and some world news) under the microscope, re-presenting it from different perspectives and highlighting the absurdities of so much of the content and the media through which the content is offered.

This is not simple slapstick or partisan humour, but intelligent, biting satire, which gets to the core of the issues. I didn't know about the Private Eye Annual before this year, but I'm really happy that I've found it now.

I suspect that if I were a reader of Private Eye, I would have seen much of this (or very similar) before. As it is not the case, I found this witty and enjoyable. Possibly not the best value for money, but then that's not really the point of annuals. Very funny with cutting humuour, perhaps a bit "samey" as you turn the pages. One to dip into rather than read through.

Another best of - but the stuff is worth rereading if you are a PE subscriber, and always a good laugh even if you are not. The cartoons as ever on form and the rest is a satirical look back at a year worth forgetting.

Excellent book, really enjoyed reading it. Best bit was that I didn't have to wait long for it, arrived via first class, superb delivery on time, book was clean, tight and in very good shape, almost new. The seller (BookSpecialists) did an excellent job. Thank you!

An annual treat that never fails to amuse. The older contributions from when 'New Labour' was in still power but on the downwards slide are nostalgic. A good buy.

As usual this is a very funny annual - but perhaps not quite the best we have enjoyed over the years
