True story from today that Spitting Image would have loved : -
Margaret Thatcher has pulled out of a party hosted by Prime Minister David Cameron to celebrate her 85th birthday because she has flu, the government said today. Poor old bird. LOL.
A milestone in television comedy, Spitting Image lifted satire to a new level for over a decade through the 1980s and '90s.
No target was safe from the series' gunsights: politicians of all persuasions, Ronald Reagan, the Pope and even the Royal Family could find themselves up for a ribbing on any given programme. This complete fifth series shows Jeffrey Archer appearing on Mastermind, Neil Kinnock being sent on a Mission Impossible, Prince Edward's attempts at guiding that year's Royal Variety Show and Pavarotti giving a star turn at The Last Night of the Yobs. This set features, amongst others, the talents of Chris Barrie, Steve Coogan, Jon Glover, Steve Nallon, Enn Reitel, Kate Robbins and Jessica Martin.
