Rory Bremner and team returned in the days leading up to the General Election 2010 with daily specials, recorded on the day of transmission. The satirical comics gave their own cutting, comic take on the election as it built to its climax.
The episodes included up-to-the-minute monologues, interviews, and various pranks and stunts, the ultimate aim of which was to deliver an up-to-date debunk of the Cameron-Brown-Clegg final showdown as it happened. Bremner provided analysis and a running commentary, aided by John Bird, John Fortune and a host of special guests.
There was a cast of hundreds (well, Rory in lots of different disguises), as well as 'pass-notes' that offered a superhighway bypass around the usually dry political commentary and stuffy debate.
