Pity poor Humphrey. The PM got right round him — this time.
Years ago, my parents and I loved both Yes, Minister, and Yes, Prime Minister when they were included among the PBS prime time programs. Humphrey and his minister (think congressperson) were always trying to outhink each other as Humphrey was always protecting the government side of things, whereas Jim Hacker was (usually) an idealist.
A full doff of the hat plus a bow to Tif on the military list. I think I’ve got something to put on my wish list when the children ask me what I want for Christmas.
