The 'Eye' annual has become a tradition in this house. All the past year's slithy political toves and the false front people who make up the less than great and far from good are re-visited for your amusement. Good stuff.
Hislop and Team have maintained the usual ascerbic standard (WHICH THEY SET MANY YEARS AGO ). This is an annual which has to be an absolute MUST in Santa's stocking ! Probably the closest you will ever get to the Truth in Politics Today ! The tops in educated humour and satire.
It's the best of the satirical content from the previous 12 months of Private Eye. Apart from being highly amusing, it is a nice reminder of what the rich, famous and newsworthy have been up to, or perhaps more correctly, wish they hadn't been up to!
Lots of good jokes and spoof articles remind the reader of many of the scandals and events over the past year. If you are a Privat Eye fan you will enjoy it and if you haven't read Private Eye my guess is that you will too.
My life wouldn't be worth living if I didn't get this for my husband and son each Christmas. It just annoys me that they keep tittering all the time they are reading it. Brilliant and well up to standard.
