Preview - Have I Got News For You

A General Election campaign is fertile ground for the panel on Have I Got News For You but this one has exceeded expectation in its ludicrosity - with manifesto lies, ministers who can't do basic arithmetic, a prime minister who refuses to debate and caustic interviewers who won't let them get a word in edgeways.

Gareth Hargreaves, On The Box, 2nd June 2017
