Does 'Yes Prime Minister' need to return?
Yes, I know we have Bird & Fortune, and excellent they are too. But it's a bit cerebral for most people and we need a political satire which will bite the heels of the grubby politicians and be popular enough for everyone to watch and to talk about down the pub. I guess Spitting Image would be good too, by the same token. What happened, that we would all become so weary of politics that those lying, cheating, incompetent gits could go relatively unchallenged?
Jonathan Lynn is still around, but a Hollywood director now. Antony Jay died a while back, sadly, if memory serves. So who could write it then? Bird & Fortune maybe?! Who could be in it?
