Storyline

Sir Humphrey Appleby receives his just reward when he's told by Sir Arnold Robinson that he is to be his successor as Cabinet Secretary. Jim Hacker has mixed feelings about the whole thing and while he appreciates all of the advice he's received from Sir Humphrey over the years, they have also had their fair share of disagreements. When the Prime Minister suddenly announces his resignation, Hacker decides to take a run at the party leadership. His primary campaign issue is new regulations from Brussels on the content of sausages which point to the demise of the British banger. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?

Goofs

A collection of newspapers is seen lying on a table bearing headlines about the prospect of Jim Hacker becoming prime minister. The banner for The Guardian is misspelled as "Gaurdian". However, this may not be a goof as the Guardian has been known for decades for its many typos. (In some circles, it is known as "the Guarniad.") See more »

Quotes

Sir Humphrey Appleby: I think they refer to it as "horizontal jogging".
