Life Without George and Biker Gove – television re-imaginings we can only dream of

Following the exciting and earth-shattering news that Birds of a Feather is to return after 15 years for another series, I can reveal exclusively that a number of other old favourites are to be revived and re-imagined.

However, we should at first scotch the rumour that Edwina Currie was to take over the role of flighty, pointy, Dorien, the neighbour of warring sisters who were to be played by Louise Mensch and Nadine Dorries.

Undeterred, it is believed Edwina Currie is now busy filming a remake of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, which also stars flame-mane Rebekah Brooks and Tory behemoth Eric Pickles.Rebekah Brooks, Google Images, Yahoo Image Search

Now onto those other remakes:

Life Without George. George Osborne, UK Chancellor, Google Images, Yahoo Image SearchWistful and whimsical comedy in which the country has a different Chancellor of the Exchequer – resulting in a more vibrant economy. This in turn means train fares are always paid promptly.

Pride and Prejudice. A serial drama taking a look at the lives and loves of the Chipping Norton set.

Gimme Gimme Gimme. A fly on the wall documentary looking at the lives of the chief officers of major banks.

The Primrose Hillbillies. Led by Boris – who, inexplicably, finds himself at the top of the pile despite outward appearances of idiocy – the illustrious residents of Primrose Hill bumble their way through the world without really having a clue what is going on, leaving others to deal with the consequences.

Biker Gove. Michael Gove, Google Images, Yahoo Image Search Education Secretary Michael Gove is put in charge of all Hell’s Angels and, after consulting with well-known motorbike experts Ant and Dec, decrees that the road warriors could work just as well on tricycles. He subsequently cuts their funding for Harley Davidsons.

Yes Prime Minister. The classic political comedy is revived, with the same characters, even though none of the original main actors are available to take part (two of them by dint of being dead). Oh wait, someone actually did that.
