reflecting on the election – #GE2015

beentovoteSo the responses to the general election 2015 are long and varied. For myself, I like my reflection with a sense of humour so here goes with a brief round-up of responses.

American PJ O’Rouke is on the money with “A Point of View” for BBC Radio 4 – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-32657761

The more explosive reaction, with many expletives, comes from the Bugle podcast, (Jon Oliver & Andy Zaltzman) https://soundcloud.com/the-bugle/bugle-292-a-career-defining-election this made me laugh substantially!

As did the Dead Ringers take on the election. Broadcast on the day after the election, it does seem a bit raw but is remarkably spot on, while taking everyone for a laugh. (For this show it does help if you have a working knowledge of the political characters of the last election and the hosts of the “Today” show on BBC Radio 4). http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/fricomedy

perhaps the most disappointing satirical take on the a events of the election came from The Daily Show who seem to have missed the mark with their segment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qt8gEvGJe_I

anyway enjoy listening.
