Saturday Silliness Cinema: Yes Minister

Welcome to the show folks...

Last night I wrote about how the British sitcom Yes Minister/Yes Prime Minister set a very high standard for politically themed comedy. So today, in my usual break from ranting and raving about the business of popular culture, let's have a taste of the show...

In this clip Sir Humphrey Appleby, career senior bureaucrat, explains Britain's role in the European union to his newly appointed minister Jim Hacker.

In this clip, Sir Humphrey meets another senior bureaucrat from the environment ministry to discuss how they can save an art gallery from being demolished.

It's really a thinking person's style of comedy.
