Storyline

The Minister and Sir Humphrey debate the merits of UK membership in the European Community with Hacker definitely negative about interference from Brussels. He dislikes the constant steam of rules and regulations and sees European civil servants living a lavish lifestyle. Sir Humphrey on the other hand disagrees and suggests there are many benefits to UK participation. Their views take a considerable turn however when the rumors of a Cabinet shuffle also reveal that Hacker may be offered a senior position in Brussels. When Sir Humphrey learns who the new minister might be, he is definitely keen on Hacker remaining just where he is. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Hacker jokes that the only way for a UK politician to re-enter British politics after serving as a European Commissioner is to form his own political party. This is a reference to Roy Jenkins who helped to form the Social Democratic Party in 1981 after having served as President of the European Commission. See more »

Quotes

James Hacker: You know what they say about the average Common Market official. He has the organising ability of the Italians, the flexibility of the Germans, and the modesty of the French. And that's topped up by the imagination of the Belgians, the generosity of the Dutch and the intelligence of the Irish.
