private eye is a magazine/newspaper sold bi-weekly and costs £1.20. Its editor is ian Hislop who features weekly on the programme have i got news for you and if you want to know what this is then you can read my review on it.
Private eye has some regualar columns e.g.Dumb Britain (where they get the stupid things that people say on game shows like the weakest link)and going live where they show what funny things have gone wrong when the presenters of programmes have "gone live"
Private eye has been running for about 40 yearrs and it takes the mickey out of various polititians. In fac tthey have to keep aside about a third of their profit for law suits because so many people sue them!
I find private eye very funny and although you have to be up with the latest politics and relevent issues it is still very funny for most people who are vaguely clever.
I have a subscription to private eye and it costs around £20 per annum. I like the private eye as it presents a satirical outlook on the week's news. There is no other newspaper or magazine like it and even the ones that are close e.g spectater they are not even as close as funny as private eye.
This edition published by Fontana in 1983 in paperback tells the story of the first 21 ... more
years of the highly acclaimed satirical Eye by Patrick Marnham who worked for P.E. in the 1960's. With plenty of cartoons and covers of the Eye this book is indispensable to anybody wishing to collect the history of the magazine. It is in excellent condition.
