Storyline

Deputy Mayor Laura Fitzgerald is informed that the town of Flatby on the coast of England has never actually been conquered. The town wasn't even in the Domesday Book as the area was flooded when the King's survey came to visit. Also, there has never been any official incorporation of Flatby into any country. It follows that Flatby was never officially annexed into the United Kingdom. Taking advantage of the situation, Laura rallies the townsfolk to declare Flatby an independent state, much to the displeasure of the Government in London. Written by David McAnally <D.McAnally@uq.net.au>

Not so Perfect!
12 May 2007 | by SylSee all my reviews

Okay, the premise is that Deputy Mayor Laura Fitzgerald played by the wonderful Gwen Taylor (who should be honored by the Queen) and the town mayor played by the wonderful Rudolph Walker OBE decide that Flatby should secede from the United Kingdom and form their own country. The plot sounds a ludicrous and silly but the show's writers and cast make the show worthwhile to watch. It's filmed on location in Essex, England and casting Taylor and Walker in key roles like Laura and Winston help enhance the show's appeal. There is no such thing as a perfect state and all governments (big or small) learn that in the deadly game of politics. There are absurdities like the Flatby tours and souvenirs of the city who wants to be different from other cities. It's still fun to watch pros like Taylor and Walker.
