Vote! Vote! Vote! Vote! For Nigel Baton
The local Tory MP has died in a foxhunting accident, and with a bi-election looming, what's a well-meaning, politically active left-winger with marriage problems to do but stand for the post? But ideals and elections are not happy bedfellows, and Nigel Barton is caught between a nagging wife who 'thought your Socialism meant more to you than wanting to be a Labour candidate' and an Machiavellian political agent desperate to turn Nigel into 'the sort of bloke I'd never buy a second-hand car from'. As he begins to realise that people would rather stay at home and watch the wrestling than bother thinking about honest politics, Nigel's world is spun into a fine web of lies and empty promises, until one day he has had enough.
