'Don't get me wrong. I've got nothing against the Americans putting a man on Mars, just as long as it's George Bush.' Like the most recent critically acclaimed Bremner, Bird and Fortune series on Channel 4, YOU ARE HERE picks away at the scabs of international politics with the voice and credibility of Rory and the two Johns, and will appeal to an audience hungry for a mix of entertainment and information - tough facts made funny. The book lampoons the contradiction at the heart of Britain since Tony Blair became Prime Minister after the landslide General Election result of 1997. Warm beer and skittles, and Fortress Europe. A superpower, yet humane. A sort of America Lite. Same policies, but with all the guilt taken out. In the face of the fog of confusion created by New Labour, it can be difficult to discover the real truth. After all, why spin if you don't want people to get dizzy? But if it all gets a little confusing, then just remember: it all connects. Giant B52 planes flying out of Fairford over the Oxfordshire countryside; the collapse of the railway system; Alistair Campbell and the Hutton Report; the failings, the mess, everything. None of it is in isolation. What the British reader needs is this witty and original map explaining how it all connects, a guide to how we got here. And remember - You Are Here.… (mere)

You Are Here by Bremner, Bird and Fortune is described as the sourcebook behind their political satire; the reference for all the comedy they have ably performed for so long. This is far less dry than that suggests, and comes across as a more extensive and exhaustive version of any of their regular TV editions. It covers a mix of foreign matters, from Iraq to the UN to Africa to ex-Soviet states, and then tackles a variety of domestic political issues. At every step they systematically, succinctly and competently expose the hypocrisies, the contradictions and the failed promises that have come to characterise the Blair Government in the UK, and in tandem, the Bush Government in the US.
It’s both funny and sad at the same time; not least of which because like many of us, Bremner, Bird and Fortune believed that all of this would be done away with after the last Tory Government finally fell. Same stories, different players, and this trio are still here to put their own inimitable spin on it, as Blair’s New Labour Government takes on a ghastly mirror-image of Major’s last years. ( )
