Ho! Ho! very satirical

Ugandan Discussions. Forty years of covers from the British satirical magazine Private Eye, indexed by date and subject. Highlights include Lyndon Johnson (from 1965), Ariel Sharon (from 1982), the Diana car crash and September 11. But above all it's fascinating to see how the magazine's style of satire has changed over the years.

Wow, thanks Verstegan, at last I can again see my all time favourite eye cover, a copy of which used to hang on my toilet wall but was lost in a house move.

For those whose knowledge of 1988 German politics is a little sketchy, the cover refers to Kurt Waldheim's excuse that he couldn't remember his war time past despite allegations that he was in a unit that commited atrocities in Yugoslavia.

Does anyone have a link to the collected poems of E J Thribb as well?

That Waldheim cover is hilarious, but he wasn't a german politician but the Federal President of Austria from 1986 to 1992.
