Synopsis

Ambrose is a politician who believes he has achieved spiritual enlightenment. The truth is, he's a smug, right-wing, muddle-headed control freak. Nevertheless, he convinces the nation that he will fulfil his manifesto promise 'to put the dignity of human beings above all else'. He becomes Tory Prime Minister in a landslide victory. But, within months of taking office he announces plans to build six new mega-sized prisons and introduce national identity cards. It is all part of his personal vision known as The Great Thrust Forward which includes doubling the police force, immigration service, customs & excise and the national coast guard. When he begins an affair with Helga, a mysterious civil service secretary, with fascist tendencies, everything starts to go pear-shaped. His enemies mount a leadership challenge, but not everything runs smoothly in politics. A tale of political incompetence and human delusion.
