How the political landscape has changed, and not all for the better. Armando Iannucci, the creative genius behind the TV satire gem that was The Thick of It has ruled out reviving the series citing the difficulty in matching the warped and twisted political landscape that we now see in the houses of Parliament.
He commented: “No. Absolutely not, I now find the political landscape so alien and awful that it’s hard to match the waves of cynicism it transmits on its own. Fiction is winning out because fact is no longer making sense”.
