Make Me Prime Minister (Channel 4)

A great new reality show that looks to start airing next month. Basically The Apprentice meets politics (but not in that way :rofl:)

Hosted by Alistair Campbell and Baroness Warsi, the show will follow a bunch of contestants all vying to be crowned Channel 4’s Alternative Prime Minister through a series of political challenges.

Anyone planning to watch? I may or may not have heard one or two things about this show ahead of airing and I think you’re gonna want to check it out :slight_smile:

Presenter: I’m so sorry Simon, you’ve lost the vote of the experts and the public and it’s time for you to leave the show.

Simon: I think the important thing is I get on with the job.

Presenter: No seriously you’ve lost. You need to leave.

Simon: I’m getting on with the job thanks to my huge public support. This media circus demanding I quit is a distraction from me getting on with the job.

Presenter: Congratulations you’ve won Make me Prime Minister.

Sounds like the kind of thing that would make me want to sell off Channel 4.

Which would have absolutely no benefits to the general public.

I hope you were just joking but I still really cant stand this privatisation plan. It just seems like a revenge plan for the news holding the Tories to account. The public dont want it and no one can actually come up with any benefits for the public. Its even worse when you consider that Nadine didnt seem to have a clue what she was talking about when defending this plan.

As I said, I hoped they were joking, but you can never be sure with people anymore, and it never hurts to spread awareness of this terrible plan.

Look forward to seeing you on the show Darren!

Do you dictate to your device instead of typing too? :joy: I’ve been doing that a lot recently, and it produces some bizarre, and often embarrassing errors.

This show sounds more like my thing than this channel four thing! I do like Rob Rinder.

Welcome to the immunity community btw!

Natural immunity or with a jab? :laughing:

I haven’t a clue who your sister is, but someone there is the spitting image of Pritti Patel (but some years younger).
