Satirical series featuring bite-sized comedy hits, from fictionalised characters to stunt-led sketches, which brings the corruption, greed and hypocrisy of politicians, multi-nationals and tax-shy billionaires to the fore and drags it to the court of public opinion. They have been taking the mickey out of the British public for years - now it's their turn to be outraged, deceived, inconvenienced and humiliated.

Dale Maily is at the Occupy movement in London to have a word with the hippies; the Foundation for the Glorification of Tony Blair are on a mission to make Tony Blair a saint; and James and Barnaby are meeting for the first time at the Liberal Democrat Party conference. Meanwhile, bankers, Topshop and the London foreign embassies feel some heat.
