On my extras dvd of the Meaning of life there is this 2003 sketch about the St. Titus College where students learn all about sex, and that other sketch where they learn about business (from Mr. Ken Enron Cheney or something). Of course Life of Brian is to some extent political but this sketch struck me as unusually political for Python (well, for Michael, John and Eric at least).
Any opinions?

Eric? i dont believe eric is in the st titarse academy sketch.
its cleese, mike and a nice bit of voicing-over by terry j.

anyway the pythons made fun of polititians all the time in flying circus. Margaret Thatcher immediately springs to mind as one.....

"number twenty three, margarat thatcher's brain....."

Oh sorry, I saw the sketch only once, so I don't remember so well...
Well yes, it's true about the making fun in Flying Circus, but with Dick Cheney and Halliburton infinitely bigger crooks than Maggie Thatcher, I thought it was quite remarkable. Also because they are American. Kissinger was American, but they did not make fun of him in the same way methinks...
