There are few TV programs that I regard as must see but Have I Got News For You (HIGNFY) is one of them. Every week the panellists cock a snoop at the news.

And former Conservative Shadow Front bencher, editor of the Spector and current MP Boris Johnson on law and order
And the boys on the President of the United States
