TV review: Frankie Boyle's New World Order, BBC Two

I can't imagine many Tories enjoying this, so maybe it'll get axed in favour of some right wing comedy after this run. And admittedly some of the targets were fish-in-a-barrel. But no other television show is as vicious. It was Boyle at his bilious best.

The BBC's bid to axe left-wing comedy will fail

From Punch in the 19th century to P. J. O'Rourke to Auberon Waugh to Craig Brown to Titania McGrath, if it's grown-up, nuanced political humour and satire you want, refer to books, newspapers, magazines or the internet. Let the lefties have the airwaves.

Frankie Boyle: Scottish government will abandon clubs

Stand-up favourite Frankie Boyle has predicted that the comedy industry will be left to "go to the wall" in Scotland - because it represents the voices of working class people.
