Local Democracy – Yes, Prime Minister

My husband sent me this clip from the old show “Yes, Prime Minister” the other day:

I remember this show well, even though I was just a young child. I remember my mother almost screaming with laughter sometimes. It was her kind of humour:)

This clip (posted above) could have been aired today, as it is still relevant (and still funny). The weird thing is, though, that while we in 1986 may have genuinely laughed, the laughter has a kind of eerie feel to it today, because some people in governments might not find the PMs words so preposterous now.. Or?

PS. Love the comment:

“[…] the universities. Both of them.”
