Storyline

Jack,working for left wing journal the Tribune,scoffs when BBC World Service employee Charlotte sees professional hope for women following Margaret Thatcher's win at the 1979 elections. They argue and again Victor supports her. Orla takes pity on Aasif,a homeless Afghani boy and brings him home to stay until she can speak to the authorities on his behalf. Jack has decided to stand as a Labour candidate and feels this will threaten his political chances but the boy runs off having robbed the household. Poor Orla is equally unsuccessful in persuading Jay to come out to his parents,who reject him. Jack,however, is successfully selected as the candidate for Hitchin and there is double celebration as Lilly and Alan are getting married. On the day of the reception Victor is stopped by the police driving Jack's car and cocaine is found. To save doctor Victor from being struck off Jack must confess to possession,thus ending his career in politics. Written by don @ minifie-1
