it was amazing
bookshelves: humour

Funniest TV series ever. And this adaptation is presented as the PM's journal entries, memos etc. rather than as a TV script, so it makes for enjoyable reading.

One of the sentences I still remember, a gem, is the Prime Minister commenting about a Middle Eastern country:

"A strange place where women get stoned for committing adultery - here in England, they commit adultery when they get stoned."

That will give you taste of what's inside the covers - classic English humour.

That would be the late eighties, wouldn't it?
