Summary

We've all seen the news over the last few years, watching in wonder and disbelief at the situations the people entrusted to run the country get themselves into and then proceed to lie their way out of. Just imagine--and this won't be hard--that they were so stupid they wrote reviews of the items that got them into or out of their latest bits of trouble and posted them online.

Ted Williebond is angry, not only at having to settle for running the opposition but also for the bullying he had to endure at school by Cameron Davies and Gary Osburn, who now run the government and don't mind pointing that out to Ted every time they see him. Join Ted as he foolishly leaves reviews of such items as Silly String, vodka, and thick curtains as he tries his hardest to bring down the coalition. On the other side of the fence, we've got Daniel Dangly, a foolhardy, old-school politician from Southamptonshire who, try as he might, cannot outrun the press, who seem to stalk him for easy stories; and Elouise Munch, a career girl more concerned about who's defaced her designer handbag than the people in her constituency.

Neither Cameron Davies nor Ted Williebond runs the show, though; in fact Betty Rivers, the CEO of Information Inc., does. It can't work out well, can it? Welcome to The Idiot Government Reviews.
