I would like a source (or sources) which would show me Private Eye covers
 AND (and listen carefully!) would explain the context (usually political) 
of the contents (of the cover). (The further back the sources go the better)

Here's the collection of ALL the covers of PRIVATE EYE. Is this what you're after?

Hmm, tutuzdad's source looks familiar.  ;-)  Because a single comment
is hiding at the bottom of the page, it's easy to overlook -- I've
done so a couple of times recently.

In any event, I'll join in with tutuzdad and ask whether this resource
is sufficient.

Hello dprk007,

It's a close call as to whether tutuzdad or I should reply.  Since I
posted the information initially, I suppose I should reply.  But I
will happily buy tutuzdad that drink, or better still, defer in
another situation where both of us have a contribution to the answer.

To make it official, here again are the two (identical) home pages for
Ugandan Discussions:

Search strategy --

Searched on Google and other search engines for combinations of these terms:

"private eye"
"private eye covers"
"ugandan discussions"

I actually got addicted to this site  having spent an entire 
afternoon going through it. Some great laughs though especially Princess
Annes dogs (10 January 2004) and the Moon Rock  (10th June 1966)

This source is comprehensive, but not explanatory (except for names of
cover persons):

Sorry about that bro. We were just a few minutes apart. Didn't mean to
step on your toes.

dear tutuzdad, justaskscott

Yes please use this as an official answer. ( I am sure you can sort
out which of you will officially answer. Whoever answers can buy the
other a drink at
the next GAR's convention!!)

I can see that this site is as good as I am going to get with this one.
Ideally I would liked to have seen some of the background context but
considering that there are now over a 1000 issues some considerable
work was put into putting this site together.
Perhaps if the author of the site sees this question he/she might
spend another 10 years to investigate and write the story behind each
(I do notice that the author has not always been able to identify all
the people on the cover!)
