Storyline

Once again, the Minister, Jim Hacker and the permanent Secretary, Sir Humphrey Appleby, clash over the Minister's role in running the Department. The Minister instructs his senior civil servant to keep nothing from him and he is promptly flooded with everything under the sun.

When he learns that Hacker's daughter will stage a nude protest over her father's decision on the badgers, Appleby must come to the rescue. Written by garykmcd
