Storyline

Nicola is the leader of the opposition and, with Glenn gone, her new policy advisor is Helen Hatley. As Remembrance Sunday approaches Nicola feels the party should be realistic and agree with two unpopular policies of the government that they previously opposed. Tucker is appalled - as are the rest of the party - and things get worse when the press photograph Helen on the street with the notes from the policy meeting. Tucker is supportive - to her face but is secretly grooming Dan Miller, as he feels Nicola will commit political suicide soon anyway. And her performance at the Cenotaph proves that he could be right. Written by don @ minifie-1
