Storyline

The Prime Minister must deal with a worsening financial crisis that requires all government Departments to cut their budgets. The belt-tightening coincides with a hoped-for civil service pay increase and Sir Humphrey and Sir Frank Gordon, the Treasury Secretary, decide they need to ensure the pay rise is announced as soon as possible. The PM thinks he has Sir Humphrey this time when his political adviser provides challenging questions about the pay rise. Sir Humphrey seeks advice from his predecessor, Sir Arnold Robinson, and develops a plan to win over the PM. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Sir Humphrey Appleby: It was very painful for me not to be able to support Frank's case.
Sir Arnold Robinson: Deeply distressing.
Sir Humphrey Appleby: But clearly he was going to lose.
Sir Arnold Robinson: Quite.
Sir Humphrey Appleby: And that Wainwright female gave the Prime Minister a list of questions plus the suggestion that they stop us handling our own pay claims and let a Select Committee of parliament decide on them!
Sir Arnold Robinson: Appalling! Next thing you'd have is politicians removing civil servants on the grounds of incompetence! The thin end of the wedge.
