Political Satire UK

My bet is that there is Union cash behind this - looks rather purile, so I wouldn't be suprised.

Agreed, I could never understand why the Ben Eltons of this world never made programme about Blair and Brown, let's face it there was enough material.

Real lack of balance

Target-audience; the honest, hard-working, downtrodden masses were quiet happy to laugh at the antics of the Toffs (as they do now, it appears) but would be less amused to see their idols having the piss ripped out of them.

Real lack of balance
Quite.

World Development Forum, who ever they are, has commissioned a new Satirical Skit on George Osborne the UK Chancellor.
BBC World Business Program has just shown a couple of mins.
The Real George Osborne - Episode 1 - The Os-Borne Identity - YouTube
4 episodes already.
I always said on this board that if a Satirical Political prog had happened back in Labours first term Blair would never have had a second let alone a third term.

Chairwoman is Maggie Pankhurst - serial NGO "consultant"
Maggie Pankhurst has been a member of WDM for over 15 years and has been on Council since 2005, most recently as Chair. Maggie works as a consultant in the INGO sector working on governance and change processes with a range of small/medium organisations

Looks like she is well plugged into the network, with a good handfull of advisory jobs - probably trousering over £100,000 - no doubt operating a tax effective income protection position.

Quite.
Strange for a "charity" with an aim of reducing world hunger to spend hundreds of thousands on professionally produced series attacking the Chancellor.

There is no such thing as 'bad publicity'. This just raises their profile a little.

I'd hardly call this 'satire'. More unfounded piss taking.

You entirely missed The Thick Of It then? Got vapid flappy New Labor down to a tee. Course that's really satire from the left as well.
