And now for something completely predictable

Normally, satire has a point. Sometimes it fails. Other times the premise and the execution is so poor, you hope that something that isn’t satire is.

Play your cards right, and you’ll never find yourself in a really tough room. Being a lefty means your adoring fans will forgive your humourlessness if, say, you throw them some red meat, or pander to them in some way. It’s much like those people who still call Michael Moore a Documentary Film-maker instead of an economy grade (and size) Leni Riefenstahl - pedantry is common and desperation is king on the protest circuit.

Apparently all those ragheads are the same to Terry.

The fuse is lit!
