In episode two, it's a busy day for Nicola Murray MP, who is mostly trying to tell her left foot from her right with the help of her new policy advisor, Helen Hatley. When Helen is accidentally photographed holding embarrassing notes from Nicola's ideas meeting, Nicola and her media strategist Malcolm Tucker are less than happy. But then Nicola is already stressed by having an eight foot pork chop follow her about, and being attacked by the rest of the shadow cabinet for endorsing unpopular policies. And, even worse, her rival Dan Miller MP (Tony Gardner) seems to be getting on very well with Malcolm.
