Storyline

In his ongoing battle with the King, Urquhart decides to call an election and has senior party members and his new adviser Sarah Harding spend the weekend at Chequers. He names Chief Whip Tim Stamper party chairman but is somewhat reticent at making any post-election promises. The King also decides to go on the offensive and plans a television documentary where he will again push his views on the need for a compassionate, caring society. Sarah arranges for a poll favorable to the government. Having separated from his wife, the King's chief of staff and press secretary, David Mycroft, has found new interests in the form of a handsome man. Walking down the street alone, Sarah is accosted and told to ask the PM about Mattie Storin. Written by garykmcd
