Series 2, Episode 3

This week Miles and the team take all the week has to throw at them, wipe themselves down, and then satirise it. In their sights this week: Geoff Hoon, Tory marriage policies, Obama's first year in office, Avatar, elite teachers and Gordon Brown attempt to woo the Middle Classes. Plus there's more from constantly outraged coumnist Angela Wrangled, Newsbullet, vox pops, corrections and sundry topical news jokes.
