Telling it like it is,
This review is from: The Complete Yes Minister - Collector's Boxset  [DVD] (DVD)As a previous reviewer touched on what strikes the viewer most with this series is just how up to date it remains 25 years on.
I have just finished the first disk - I guess I was just about old enough to see a couple first time round - and the pieces about European identity cards and failing public-private partnerships are right out of the Blair era, never mind the early Thatcher days.
One is left in no doubt that this is how it is, painful though it is to accept the fact. Painful politically, but I laughed out loud on many an occasion during each episode.
Politics and the civil service may still be much like this today - what a shame that television is not.
