Except Mark Thomas's Comedy Product wound up in 2002 (it was great and very influential, I'd really not count his much tricksier and comedic manifesto show as biting satire).
Rob Newman, did he have a proper solo show? (Again great performer)
Bremner Bird and Fortune was amazing but look how isolated it is.
The Thick of It? Meh, it made fun of the tabloidy side of Blairite soft politics, but not the actual policies.
Now compare that to NT9ON, Frost Report, Young Ones, early Comic Strip, Spitting Image, Ben Elton, Saturday Night Live etc etc

Yeah, more than 4 years after he'd ceased to be of relevance, and at least 7 years after they could and should have done it. The way they presented Cameron and Brown was certainly comical, but hardly biting.
I was being sarcastic.
Oh and Whoops Apocalypse was great.
