Used to be, back in the days when Angus Deayton hosted it.

For me, he was the best host of the show - he favoured neither left nor right and was well balanced but fair.

Now, it has become one of those smarmy bourgeois panel shows with the same interchangeable know-nothing d-heads. Whilst it may appeal to safe-space liberals, for me it has lost its edge and purpose.

I'm a fan. Ian Hislop is still excellent at exposing hypocrisy from both sides, and generally comes across as being against whoever is in power. I did like it better when Angus Deayton was permanent host though

Big fan and have been lucky enough to see it filmed live.

Hislop does a better job of holding politicians to account in half an hour than the rest of the BBC manages in the other 167.5 hours of the week.

I suspect that if people currently reading tabloid newspapers switched to Private Eye then the country would be going in a vastly different (and better) direction.

Other than by accident, I haven't seen it for years. Does Paul Merton still look as if he wished he were somewhere else?

Nowhere near enough pictures in Private Eye and far too many big words.

What has worried me, though, is that I like the same TV programme as Gareth Shocked

Paul Merton did leave for a short period in 1996 for a series
