Series 3, Episode 6

What is that on the horizon? Why, it's a sketch about the Conservatives' Big Society. And who's that snuffing around in the undergrowth? Yes, it's Vince Cable chirruping on about two years degrees. And who's that handing out the Turkish Delight? None other than George Osborne! But be careful - he'll probably give you less than you wanted. Plus, the latest news from Tajikistan, Kafka's box and moving excerpt from Barry Chuckle's memoirs.
