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.

Brilliant series

There are so many laws, rules and petty restrictions
in force now that Spittin Image could not be made
again. Such a great series, a brilliant end to every
weekend, 10pm Sunday.
Hot, you made me laugh just thinking about it.

Saw a couple of episodes on sky a few months back. Loved it it the time but it just seems so dated(obviously) and unfunny now

Perhaps she got confused when she heard that there were a load of miners celebrating somewhere and thought she'd give it a miss in case it was actually her wake!

It is probably more to do with the fact that the script writers were generally Labour supporting socialists who would never dream of doing such a thing to there own kind (think Ben Elton). Some of nulabour would have been hilariously portrayed IMO.
