Francis Urquhart calls the election but the party is down 13 points in the polls and he will obviously have a hard slog ahead if he is to be reelected. A gas explosion in a block of flats gives the King a platform to drive home his point about the need to invest more in housing and social services, but the PM also makes use of the opportunity to remind the King to stay out of politics. Party Chairman Tim Stamper is not very pleased that his old friend Urquhart won't promise him a senior Cabinet post should they win the election and he sets out to ruin him. As the Conservative party inches ever closer to being reelected, Urquhart must deal with Stamper and Sarah, both of whom have the evidence to bring him down. Written by

No, not this time.
