Rui pls. Politics is the ultimate sport, because it's the only competition where the outcome actually matters.
Maybe there just aren't enough people out there making it exciting or engaging? Same goes for news in general, really. I've been watching through Spitting Image recently (rewatching, actually, I think viewing it from pretty much being born might have had some sort of effect on me) and I did wonder, if it were produced again today, how much of the audience would actually recognise the current members of the cabinet and shadow cabinet being satirised? Or the issues surrounding them that were being brought up for that matter. There does seem to have been a wholesale disengagement by the public from politics and current affairs in the last two decades.
