Back in September, The Huffington Post UK felt the political year had already been surreal enough to warrant comparison to legendary profanity-ridden comedy show, The Thick Of It.
In fact three months before that, the creator of the show, Armando Iannucci, ruled out a new season because he found the political landscape “so alien and awful that it’s hard to match the waves of cynicism it transmits on its own”.
Well, a lot’s happened since then so undeterred, let’s give it another go.
(Oh, and Jeremy Hunt didn’t make the list, so here’s picture to honour that.)
If it wasn’t for the Sky News banner you’d have been forgiven for thinking this was a one-off Christmas special.
Perhaps it’s the pained look on Corbyn’s face?
Or maybe it’s the sheer panic on Tom Watson’s face?

The then-London Mayoral hopeful was asked by Red Carpet News TV for his views on the Bollywood film industry.
Goldsmith launched into a gushing monologue praising the awards which were held on 8 April.
He said: “It’s a huge festival and it celebrated huge talent. This room is going to be bursting with dynamism and brilliance and excitement. I’m here just as a guest and I’m looking forward to absorbing some of the energy.
“I’m a Bollywood fan so anything Bollywood, I lap it up.”
The interviewer than asked: “You say you’re a Bollywood fan. Do you have a favourite actor, or a favourite Bollywood film?”
And this is when it starts to go downhill.
Goldsmith flounders and stumbles over his words, clearly stumped.
“I wouldn’t be able to... Let me think... No. I’m not going to give you one. I can’t think of a favourite,” he says.
The interviewer asks: “You can’t think of a single Bollywood film or actor?”
Goldsmith replies: “I can think of... I can’t think of a favourite, though I love the whole... I love almost everything about Bollywood.
“I love the atmosphere, I love the colour, I love the excitement. I want as much colour as possible here in London.”

In the aftermath of the EU referendum vote, Jeremy Corbyn’s MPs began to jump ship in droves.
