What happens when the prime minister suddenly stops being prime minister? One day you're the most powerful person in the country, the next you're irrelevant, forced into retirement 30 years ahead of schedule and find yourself asking 'What do I do now?' 'I can't just disappear like Gordon Brown. They say he barely gets out of bed now. Just sits there doing word-searches and eating Kit Kat Chunkies. Miserable. I hate the chunky ones.' Former British Prime Minister Henry Tobin After some unsuccessful attempts last summer to get back to the top, Henry returns with some new ideas on how to delay his impending descent into national irrelevance. In this first episode of the new series, Henry and team travel to Birmingham for the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games and immediately spy an opportunity for a comeback.
