Power Monkeys Episode Two ~ Channel Four

The opinion polls on Donald Trump and his wife have had me in tear rolling laughter in this week’s episode. The belly laughs that I was hoping for have definitely emerged. Trump’s jet is yet again the source of most of my amusement, the comments relating to Trump’s statement in relation to the Orlando tragedy were spot on. Amelia Bullmore, Robert Wilfort and Ayda Field are making a formidable team.

The Russians are naturally worried about the football, and talk on the No Thank E.U. bus turns to the violence between the England and Russian football fans. Then there’s Priya (Archie Panjabi) has been asked on News Night… and then been ditched again! Spencer (Kevin McNally) is on form and still sporting the Union Jack waistcoat while taking exception to Priya’s comments – the banter and pace of interaction between the Brexit pushers is gathering momentum.


In the Tory camp Tony (Anthony Calf) and Sarah (Claire Skinner) have been up to no good in a hotel, typical Tories! There’s also plenty of talk about Sir Philip Green whose reputation and indeed his knighthood depends on what he does to rectify the BHS pensions situation. Jack Dee is still the perfect addition to team Tory, one withering look is all it takes from him.

The Geldof/Farage exchange appeared to dominate the script, but for the most part, I’m still finding the Trump campaigners to be the heroes of the show!

My overall opinion on this week’s episode? I’m still finding some of the disjointed scenes slightly distracting, but the instalment itself was an improvement on last week’s.
