Craig Brown, who is an exceptional mimic his celebrity diaries in Private Eye are unbeatable , has now had a shot at paying homage to the original. Wisely, Brown doesn't go in for a fully-blown pastiche; instead, he catches the flavour of the original, and proceeds to enjoy himself. With 90 instead of years to deal with, he has a harder job. There is a good, knowing gag about Idi Amin which nails his problem. There are a couple of slips, too - as when The Rolling Stones appear elsewhere as themselves. But for every excess, there are three treats.
As the clock strikes midnight on New Year's Eve, , the smiles are wiped off the faces of all ordinary decent Britons. In , just after the Beatles split up, the pound was decimated, which made everyone even more depressed. Decimation meant that the Penny Farthing was abolished, causing Britain to ride around on a cycle of depression. As Britain took to the Continental way of adding up, what had once been clear now became muddled. Where there had once been a handy pennies in a pound, there were now just kilometres, and where there were an easy-to-remember 12 pennies in a shilling there were now five kilowatts.
