The return of Spitting Image is a well and truly welcome one with the infamous satirists setting their targets on today’s news makers.
The British series was a huge hit in the 1980s and 1990s. Even Margaret Thatcher – often a target of the sketches- was said to love their merciless takes on politicians and others who were dominating the headlines.
With debate surrounding who is really controlling political agendas behind the scenes, the series is set to have a plenty of rubbery behaviour for material to work with.
One may ask is it possible to satirise certain political leaders whose behaviour has long since croseds boundaries others wouldn’t dare, but if anyone can do it, it’s Spitting Image.
