As I mentioned before, I am a big fan of Private Eye magazine, and buy at just about every fortnight.
And this edition is a particular gem, although I don't think the cover is so good (I still think one of the best is the first ever one I brought, the one with David Mellor and his family and in-laws posing for the cameras)
So what do I like about this edition! Well the Street of Shame articles are good. I thought the Jonathan Aitken spoof diary was cruel, but the joke in it about Aspinall and Goldsmith was good, although I would have involved Aspinall's zoo in the bit about the Emperor Bokassa wanting something to eat had I drafted it. Or maybe for legal reasons I might not have, in any case (ahem) we all know what a kind and lovely person Aspinall was and his zoo was one of the best in the land! The bit about Freddie Forsyth and Charles Haughey is an eye opener and I hope it isn't true because, whilst I strongly disagree with Forsyth at the best of times, I have some respect for him.
And the Premiers**ts, Yobettes, and Gary Bloke cartoons are a joy as ever.
