Johnnie is reelected with the ruling Labour Party but is disappointed not to receive an invitation to join the Government. As his wife leaves him, he joins a conspiratorial group working against the centrist government. Mary, the single woman upstairs clearly adores him but they never quite become a couple. Johnnie falls in love with a 20-year-old student/model Pauline, and misses an important speech because he is in bed with Pauline. His conspirators turn against him and cause his constituents to turn against him. He narrowly escapes a vote of no-confidence in his constituency, and goes in search of Pauline who has ended their relationship, still in love, but knows it is not the right relationship for her.
He goes back home, to find his wife wants to try again, Mary is still interested and the Prime Minister offers him a post.....
