Storyline

It's election time and true blue Rigsby will be voting Conservative whilst the boys are flying the flag for Labour. Ruth is a floating voter. All three candidates visit the house, Rigsby antagonizing the Labour man by suggesting that he is a homosexual with a Filipino house-boy whilst Ruth scares off the Liberal hopeful by making advances at him. Finally the Conservative candidate comes in and, after his dog has fouled the carpet, he tells Rigsby he plans to knock his house down, ultimately recognizing Rigsby as the man who was barred from the Conservative Club Billiards Tournament for cheating. This makes Rigsby's mind up. He will be voting Labour. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

Michael Ward's Labour Candidate character (variously referred to by Rigsby as both dishonest and homosexual) was named Pendry in the original episode as transmitted. Unfortunately real-life Labour MP Tom Pendry decided that this was tantamount to libel, and succesfully sued Yorkshire Television. YTV apparently wiped the master tape; consequently the only copy believed to have survived is a slightly low-quality Canadian NTSC recording. This is generally screened with offending banners bearing Pendry's name blurred out. No-one knows if the PAL master actually exists or not. See more »
