Not the Nine O’Clock News Spoof Tory Political Broadcasts

Here’s a sketch from Not the Nine O’clock News sending up Conservative party political broadcasts. In it, the Tories compare the excessive government spending of Labour administrations with Mel, as a ‘stout’ person (remember that sketch?) getting into an overfull bath. This represents the damage done to the economy, which can only be corrected through radical cutting. With a chainsaw.

It may come from the 1980s, but it’s still sharp and relevant today. British comedy lost one of its truly great talents when Mel passed away.
