Judy and Trisha speculate that Miss Mathers is seeing Mr. Mitchell. It's time to elect representatives to the school council, but to start with each form has to come up with likely candidates. Mr. Mitchell tells his form that the possibilities are Trisha, Tucker and Ann, although some unlikely other options are Snoopy, the Six Million Dollar Man and "our budgie". Trisha immediately wants to opt out, while Ann, with support from both Judy and Trisha, suggests that Tucker is an inappropriate choice, because he messes around. A fourth choice materializes in the form of new boy Doyle, whose credentials include having a father on the local council, but who has a history of bad behaviour. Form One Alpha easily votes in Ann to be their candidate, and then the campaigns get started. Ann gets some impressive banners designed with the help of the Art teacher, promising to try to end school uniforms and introduce a tuck shop. The poster is affixed everywhere - including the back of boys' blazers... Written by Geffers
