I take it this is based on a popular show. :-)

Yes, Minister and then Yes, Prime Minister are a political satire comedy from the 80s and the books are very, very readable.

It's a superb series (I'm not that sure how it works outside of the UK as it is very British and based on our political system).

I loved this show!

Oh, did you? That's interesting.

I was just saying to Gilda above I wasn't sure how it would work outside of the UK, given it was so very British & based on our political system. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it so much. It's probably the show/books J & I quote most often *g*

Well, this is not to say I understood all the nuances, but it was interesting to see how very differently your government functions as compared to ours.

That sounds rather like me and The West Wing. It is interesting to see the differences in political systems.

I think it's very much like that.

I think you once said you loved this. I know it's been on here as well, a long time ago, but I've never seen it.

Indeed. It's probably my favourite comedy series and I love the books as well.

I'm honestly not sure how it translate outside of the UK as it is very British & based on our political system which differs quite a bit from others.
