Government minister Aiden Hoynes launches an attack on the prime minister's immigration policy and makes a leadership bid but is forced to resign after it is thwarted by fellow minister Bruce Babbish. The resignation prompts a cabinet reshuffle in which Aiden's supportive wife Freya,also a politician,is offered the ministry of work and pensions. Aiden urges her to accept so that she can carry on challenging the immigration policy,surrounding her with his own former staff. Freya does indeed accept whilst Aiden becomes a house husband,driving their autistic son Noah to school. However,in her first television interview Freya implies that she does not support her husband's views on immigration after all.

Did You Know?
"The Politician's Husband" was written by Paula Milne, the same screenwriter as "The Politician's Wife," which aired on BBC Channel 4 in 1995, and subsequently on PBS. They do not have the same characters. See more
I therefore came to the reluctant conclusion that I could no longer serve in my right honorable friend's government.
